Digital Humanities SoCal





Digital Humanities SoCal

It has no governing body, governing rules, or dues. Twitter users may wish to follow @dhsocal and add #dhsocal to any Tweets related to digital humanities in Southern California.

Conferences and Events




HILT: Humanities Intensive Learning and Teaching  

HILT is a 5-day training institute that includes keynotes, ignite talks, and local cultural heritage excursions for researchers, students, early career scholars and cultural heritage professionals who seek to learn more about Digital Humanities theory, practice, and culture. In addition to the conference’s day-time sessions, participants can enjoy opportunities to explore the city through local dining and special events.


DHSI: Digital Humanities Summer Institute

The Digital Humanities Summer Institute provides an ideal environment for discussing and learning about new computing technologies and how they are influencing teaching, research, dissemination, creation, and preservation in different disciplines, via a community-based approach. A time of intensive coursework, seminars, and lectures, participants at DHSI share ideas and methods, and develop expertise in using advanced technologies. Every summer, the institute brings together faculty, staff, and students from the Arts, Humanities, Library, and Archives communities as well as independent scholars and participants from areas beyond.


Annual Conference of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations






Annual Conference of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO)

The ADHO organizes and sponsors an annual conference. The first joint conference was held in 1989 at the University of Toronto. That event was the 16th annual meeting of ALLC (Association of Literary and Linguistic Computing) and the ninth annual meeting of the ACH (Association for Computers and the Humanities)-sponsored International Conference on Computers and the Humanities (ICCH). Since then, the joint conference has grown to include additional organizations, and it has been held in cities around the world.
