Call for Hosts: Digital Humanities Conference 2026 (DH2026)

The Conference Coordinating Committee of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) invites proposals to host the Digital Humanities Conference in 2026 (DH2026).

Digital Humanities (DH) is ADHO’s annual international conference. ADHO’s constituent organizations are the Australasian Association for Digital Humanities (aaDH), the Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH), the Canadian Society for Digital Humanities / Société canadienne des humanités numériques (CSDH/SCHN), centerNet, the Digital Humanities Alliance for Research and Teaching Innovations (DHARTI) the Digital Humanities Association of Southern Africa (DHASA), Digital Humanities im deutschsprachigen Raum (DHd), the European Association for Digital Humanities (EADH), Humanistica, l’association francophone des humanités numériques (Humanistica), the Japanese Association for Digital Humanities (JADH), the Korean Association for Digital Humanities / 한국디지털인문학협의회 (KADH), Red de Humanidades Digitales (RedHD), and the Taiwanese Association for Digital Humanities (TADH).

The next DH conference, DH2024, will be held 6-9 August 2024 in Washington DC, USA, organized by the George Mason University, and DH2025 will be held in Lisbon, Portugal and will be organized by the Universidade NOVA.

For DH2026 the call for hosts is “open”, meaning that we invite bids from academic institutions anywhere in the world in coordination with a designated ADHO constituent organization (see list above). We are particularly interested in proposals from institutions or groups of institutions that have developed or are developing digital humanities communities and organizations, have not previously hosted a DH conference, and/or are interested in developing new modes of conference organization and participation. In 2024, ADHO is going back to the original three year time table for the Conference organization. To achieve this, in June/July 2024, we will launch the Call for Hosts for the Digital Humanities Conference 2027 (DH2027). We recommend you to keep these dates in mind in order to apply to either or both of these Calls.

Please note that the Local Organizers must be members of one of the ADHO constituent organizations listed above.
