The Digital Orientalist’s Conferences

Since 2021, every year we aim to organize an online conference that brings together scholars, librarians, students, and researchers to talk about DH, with or without a chosen theme.

The Digital Orientalist is entirely run on a volunteering basis, including these conferences. The great conversations that we are able to foster come entirely from presenters’ own time. Access to these conferences is always open and free to all.

We are grateful to them, and to the organizers, for their commitment to creating accessible conversations, year after year.
