Monday, 20 July
After the success of the second edition in Utrecht, the ADHO-Special Interest Group “Digital Literary Stylistics” (SIG-DLS) organizes a new version of its Tool criticism workshop for the DH2020 Virtual Conference.
The main goal of the workshop is to provide more critical awareness on the use of tools in DLS. This type of tool criticism can only be stimulated in two ways: (a) by a direct confrontation with user feedback and reports, which usually remain “in the background” of research papers; or (b) via reconstructions of the historical evolution of tools and methodologies (which are never a given, but are built on top of complex–and sometimes unpredictable–research paths).
Tuesday, 21 July
11:00 EDT | 15:00 UTC – Network Studies on Culture – Details & Registration
Wednesday, 22 July
12:00 EDT | 16:00 UTC – AVinDH SIG Workshop: AudiAnnotate: – Details & Registration
This introductory workshop will include basic information about the AudiAnnotate project, about using IIIF and the IIIF specifications for AV, how we are using Audacity to annotate audio files, and how we are using static sites, Jekyll, and GitHub to manage editing and publishing IIIF manifests and annotations.
13:00 EDT | 17:00 UTC – Demystifying ADHO, the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations
This forum brings together people with “insider knowledge” of ADHO based on their participation on multiple committees and in leadership roles in both ADHO and a few sample COs. These facilitators will give a series of lightning talks covering ADHO’s organizational structure, finances, committees, and activities, and they will then open the floor for questions and discussion. We welcome even the most difficult questions and topics and will strive to be honest and open about ADHO’s challenges.
Please join us for a live (synchronous) session on Wednesday, July 22, at 17:00 UTC, to discuss what makes the many pieces of ADHO work together, and how each of us has come into the organization to which we’ve dedicated our time and effort. In preparation for that discussion, we welcome your questions in advance using the Discussion section for this Forum. For those unable to join in real time, we will record the forum and post the recording for continued discussion.

About the Twin Talks workshop
This workshop is the third in a series where the main objective is to get a better understanding of the dynamics on the Digital Humanities work floor where humanities scholars and digital experts meet and work in tandem to solve humanities research questions. The best way to do this seems to be to give both parties the opportunity to present their achievements and to share their collaboration experiences with the audience. The insights gained should help those involved in the education of humanities scholars, professionals and technical experts alike to develop better training programmes.
Discussion among audience and presenters for panel 228: “Compartir lo que nos une: Digitizing and Curating Colonial Records from the Caribbean and Central and South America for Public Outreach” (Hadassah St. Hubert, Antonio Rojas Castro, Tobias Kraft, Kathrin Kraller, María José Afanador-Llach, Amalia S. Levi).

8:00 EDT | 12:00 UTC – Building New Global DH Communities: Africa and Beyond – Details & Registration
DH has been expanding almost exponentially over the past few years, with the DH2019 conference being the biggest conference to date with more than 1000 participants. Despite this large number, broad representation of a global DH community is still lagging behind, with North-America and Europe still representing more than 80% of the participants despite international growth elsewhere, especially in Africa.
This forum aims to build on this foundation as well as the work done by GO::DH and aims to further facilitate discussions around the theme of how we can promote global DH intersections, accessibility and participation not just for African DH scholars but any independent scholar.
Are you tired of Zoom, but want to visit with other DH folks during virtual #DH2020? On Friday July 24th, Shawn Moore, Artjoms Šeļa, and Quinn Dombrowski are organizing lightning talks at 9 AM EDT (1 PM UTC) in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
For lightning talks, you have 5 minutes to present on your DH work. Use your clothes to display visualizations & bring any number of fish/bugs to emphasize your points!
One of the main characteristics of work in the Digital Humanities is collaboration: between individual scholars with complementary expertise, across disciplines, and languages, countries, and continents. Many digital humanists have found that academic cultures can differ widely because cultural factors often weigh on the scope and vision of individuals. For this reason, diversity is at the forefront of the Digital Humanities. This workshop aims to make the participants acquainted with different understandings of diversity in different parts of the globe while considering how more diverse teams contribute to the development of our work.
The workshop is directed at anyone with an interest in understanding diversity in digital humanities and creating a welcoming and inclusive DH environment. Conference organizers, leaders in the field, and those who often form part of hiring committees are invited to participate. Everyone is welcome to attend, but we particularly encourage the participation of people who are in privileged positions in academia, GLAM, or similar environments.

Saturday, 25 July
10:00 EDT | 14:00 UTC – Sustaining Digital Humanities Center, Labs, and Institutes Tutorial – Details & Registration
In this two hour tutorial, the facilitators will raise questions that are germane to digital humanities centers, labs and institutes regardless of location, size, or stage of development. These begin with the general question of how can digital humanities support institutional goals, such as cross-department collaboration, diversity and interdisciplinary research, while at the same time being distinctive and forward looking. The intention is to facilitate discussion about these key issues and others, such as the cultural context in which centers operate, and the opportunities of working within different national research systems and what can be learned from these. Our goal is to encourage participants to share their very different experiences.
