The third annual Centre Directors Meetup will be held at the Bavarian Bier Café, 2-8 Phillip Street, Parramatta, from 6.30pm on Monday 29 June 2015 (by invitation), co-sponsored by centerNet and the Australasian Consortium of Humanities Research Centres.
centerNet is an international network of digital humanities centres formed for cooperative and collaborative action to benefit digital humanities and allied fields in general, and centres as humanities cyberinfrastructure in particular. Anchored by its new publication DHCommons, centerNet enables individual DH centres to network internationally — sharing and building on projects, tools, staff, and expertise. Through initiatives such as Day(s) of DH and Resources for Starting and Sustaining DH Centres, centerNet provides a virtual DH centre for isolated DH projects and platform for educating the broader scholarly community about Digital Humanities.
The Australasian Consortium of Humanities Research Centres (ACHRC) is a network for groups engaged in Humanities-based research. It aims to connect Humanities researchers and centres, both within the Australasian region and internationally, and to promote relationships with cultural institutions and sector representative bodies in the wider community. It provides a virtual and physical hub for information about research opportunities and events, and seeks to strengthen the public profile of research in the Humanities.
