Digital Library Futures at DH2018
The 2018 Digital Humanities Conference, organised by the Association of Digital Humanities Organizations in conjunction with El Colegio de México, La Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), and La Red de Humanidades Digitales (RedHD), takes place this year in Mexico City from 26-29 June. According to the conference website, DH2018
is a space for diversity and dialogue in digital research and teaching across all arts, social sciences and humanities. The 2018 conference marks the first time that the conference will take place in Latin America & the global south. Mexico´s sociocultural diversity makes it an ideal location for converging digital humanists from distinct cultures, contexts, and socio-political realities. The crossing of cultural, technological, political and ideological borders will stride towards the creation of a digital humanities community that is truly transnational and inclusive.
