EADH History

The European Association for Digital Humanities (EADH) was founded in 1973 under the name Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing (ALLC) with the original purpose of supporting the application of computing in the study of language and literature.

As the range of available and relevant computing techniques in the humanities increased, the interests of the association’s members have broadened substantially and encompass not only text analysis and language corpora, but also history, art history, music, manuscript studies, image processing and electronic editions. The association’s new name, which was adopted in 2012, reflects this significant widening of scope. Today the EADH’s mission is to represent European Digital Humanities across all disciplines.

ADHO

The European Association for Digital Humanities is a founding chapter - or ‘constituent organisation’ - of an international umbrella organisation, the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO). ADHO presently (6/2015) includes

ADHO has adopted the EADH journal DSH - Digital Studies in the Humanities (published by Oxford University Press) as its main print publication. Two open access journals, namely DHQ (Digital Humanities Quarterly and Digital Studies / Le champ numérique, are also published under the ADHO umbrella.
