Towards a Diverse and Different DH: An Open Forum to Discuss Protocols and Procedures for the Global Transdisciplinary Digital Humanities seeks to explore the development of protocol and procedures to ensure a positive and harassment-free experience for everyone regardless of gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, origin, or religion.

What questions should individuals, departments, projects, and organizations ask themselves to account for diversity and difference? How might we begin to develop protocols and procedures to understand how to engender a positive experience for digital humanities students, researchers, and collaborators? What evaluative metrics might diversity and difference generate if we begin to consider difference as an essential component of DH? How might we begin to assess teams, projects, departments, journals, and organizations if diversity becomes one of the main assessment criteria?

The goal of this forum will be to facilitate a discussion among digital humanities scholars that will result in an open document that seeks to define and delineate the responsibilities that individuals, organizations, and teams should have when conducting digital humanities teaching and research. And importantly, it will form an open challenge to the DH to seriously address its place in facilitating diversity and difference.

This custom session will be offered as a 2 hour open forum; facilitators, working in conjunction with Dr. Guiliano, will be drawn from the HASTAC2016 program with the goal being that the authorship of the document reflects the interests and knowledge of the attendees themselves.
