About Digital Frontiers

Digital Frontiers is a project to explore creativity and collaboration across disciplinary boundaries in the arena of public humanities and cultural memory.

As many members of our community are aware, Proposition 1 (HERO), the non-discrimination ordinance on the ballot in Houston, failed in the election on November 3.

While we are dismayed by the results of the election, we will not be relocating the 2016 Digital Frontiers conference.

We are delighted to announce that Digital Frontiers has received the endorsement and sponsorship of the Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH). The sponsorship includes a financial award of $750 which will offset travel expenses for one keynote speaker.

The Digital Frontiers Programming Committee is pleased to announce that the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations' (ADHO) Conference Coordinating Committee has endorsed Digital Frontiers 2016.

We are honored to receive this recognition from such an august and influential organization in the field as Digital Frontiers celebrates its 5th Anniversary in September at Rice University.
