    Digital Resources for the Humanities Conference

    Call to host DRH 2003

    The Digital Resources for the Humanities (DRH) conference is an annual
    international conference for bringing together the creators, users,
    distributors, and custodians of digital resources in the Humanities. The
    conference promotes the creation, management, dissemination, use and
    preservation of high quality humanities digital resources. The term
    'humanities' in this context has a wide definition which encompasses the
    work of the cultural industries, epitomised by museums, galleries,
    archives, and heritage management; as well as subjects like art, design,
    architecture, film, radio, television, performance, music, dance, literary
    and linguistic studies, history, archaeology, religion and classics.

    The Digital Resources for the Humanities (DRH) Standing Committee warmly
    invites proposals from organisations within the British Isles to host the
    DRH conference in 2003. Previous hosts of DRH have found running the
    conference very rewarding. Hosts have also found that it can be an
    opportunity to alert their own institution to the growing range of
    activity in this area as well as having the potential to raise the
    international profile of their own institution within the broad
    communities served by the conference.

    The document, "Hosting a Digital Resources for the Humanities Conference"
    available online via <http://www.drh.org.uk/>, provides background
    information to the conference, answers some of the commonly-asked
    questions about hosting a DRH conference, and outlines the requirements of
    a bid. The document should be read together with the DRH Protocol, also
    online at <http://www.drh.org.uk/>.

    You are encouraged to discuss the submission of a bid with Michael Fraser,
    Chair of the Standing Committee or any other member of the Committee
    (especially members who have been actively involved in the local
    organisation of a previous DRH conference).

    Expressions of interest should be submitted by email to Michael Fraser
    (mike.fraser@oucs.ox.ac.uk) by 23 November 2001.
