The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) invites for its annual conference, July 25-29, 2022 at Toshi Center Hotel, in Tokyo, Japan.
Asia has a long history of digital humanistic research, reaching back to the 1950s. Over the past several years, the ADHO DH conferences have seen a steady increase in participation and presentations by scholars from India, Central Asia, Southeast Asia, Taiwan, China, Korea, and Japan. There is a closeness among Asian neighbors not only geographically, but also in terms of shared history, cultural values, and linguistic connections. With this background in mind, DH2022 provides an opportunity to showcase not only DH in Japan, but to also provide a window into the breadth of DH research and teaching throughout the Asian region. At the same time, DH2022 offers the chance for Western scholars to visit the wonderful city of Tokyo, and forge long-lasting relationships with Asian colleagues. The organizers hope to provide a place to meet face-to-face for global communication and collaboration among DH colleagues. Nevertheless, the ongoing worldwide crisis due to the COVID pandemic creates challenges for many scholars to participate in-person in the conference. Therefore, the organizers for DH2022 will support an equitable “hybrid” style of conference, with both in-person and virtual forms of presentation and interaction that ensures the high quality of ADHO’s international conference whilst ensuring safety.*
* Please note that with the ongoing nature of the pandemic crisis, the organizers might need to move the entire conference online. It is anticipated that this decision will be made by the end of 2021, and all submitting authors will be informed as soon as possible.
