Digital Humanities Conferences

Digital Humanities

The largest international Digital Humanities conference in the Western hemisphere. It is organized yearly by the Alliance for Digital Humanities Organizations. The 2014 conference is being held in Lausanne, Switzerland. Last year's conference was in Lincoln, NB, USA. Conferences alternate between U.S. and non-U.S. locations.


Sponsored by the Humanities, Arts, Sciences and Technology Advanced Collaboratory. Activities at HASTAC conferences tend to focus on quantitative analysis and tools development.


THATCamp events happen regionally, year round. They are informal get-togethers for scholars interested in talking about the digital humanities and developing skills. Sessions at THATCamps range from open salon-style discussion to hack-a-thons for learning new technology skills.

Post Colonial Digital Humanities

This web site's goal is to address the technological changes around the world that provide opportunities for the application and analysis of postcolonial studies within the framework of humanities computing. It outlines the shape of the contemporary ‘postcolonial digital humanities’ through interrogating the ways postcolonial studies has evolved through different phases of internet culture. (from the web site)


Self-described as "A consortium of humanists, artists, social scientists, scientists and engineers committed to new forms of collaboration across communities and disciplines fostered by creative uses of technology." Use the Topics section to explore areas of particular interests and find out what others in the field are contributing. Use the Scholars section to connect with other scholars. HASTAC is an expecially rich resource for finding partners to engage in digital humanities projects.
