Community Interest Groups

Community interest groups (CIGs) are community-driven groups which are organised around an existing community of practice, a specific research interest, or a salient issue within the digital humanities community. These groups serve as one of the primary vehicles for community building within the Association and help the Association become more inclusive, collaborative, and sustainable by providing spaces that respond to community needs.

Transition Period Documents

As the Association transitions from being a grant-funded network to a self-sustaining membership organisation, the following documents lay out how the Association plans to approach major questions like governance, membership, and programming. As part of its commitment to openness and transparency, the documents are open to comment and feedback from members of the digital humanities community.

Network White Papers

The forerunner to the Association was the UK-Ireland Digital Humanities Network, an AHRC/IRC-funded project running from 2020-22 to undertake research and consultation towards the implementation of a permanent DH association for the UK and Ireland. That project produced a series of discussion papers, which were informed by events hosted with the DH community in both countries. These discussion papers lay out some of the areas of focus and interest for the Association.
