Code of conduct

The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) organizes an annual conference for the benefit of its members and for the advancement of research and scholarship in the variety of disciplines and professions they represent. ADHO works actively toward the creation of a more diverse, welcoming, and inclusive global community of digital humanities scholars and practitioners, and is therefore dedicated to the creation of a safe, respectful, and collegial conference experience for all attendees.

Open, critically-engaged, and often challenging discourse is expected to flourish at ADHO conferences. Participants are encouraged to respect and celebrate cultural and linguistic differences, and to be mindful of the international nature of our community in preparing presentations and engaging in conversation. There is no place at ADHO meetings for harassment or intimidation based on race, religion, ethnicity, language, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, physical or cognitive ability, age, appearance, or other group status. Unsolicited physical contact, unwelcome sexual attention, and bullying behavior are likewise unacceptable.

Please also remember to ask permission when you want to take a picture of any other participant.

Persons of confidence 

During the workshops and the conference three persons of confidence are available. Please contact one of them by mail or by phone if there is anything you would like to talk about, relating to the code of conduct. They will make sure to meet you as soon as possible,  and will in confidence listen and advise.
