The Digital Humanities Slack

    The Digital Humanities Slack is a set of informal, connected chat rooms for the digital humanities, with over 50 "channels" (chat rooms) devoted to specific topics such as DH teaching, coding, and conferences. Come join us! Absolutely no DH background is required. Before signing up, do read the section immediately outlining our community-authored code of conduct.

    Code of Conduct

    The DH Slack is dedicated to a harassment-free experience for everyone. Harassment and other code of conduct violations reduce the value of our community for everyone, regardless of the intent behind these violations. We prioritize marginalized people’s safety over privileged people’s comfort. Our decisions are guided by whether behavior has a bad impact on our community, rather than whether a bad impact was created by good intent. Use of the DH Slack is dependent on abiding by the terms of the code of conduct, a document that outlines acceptable and non-acceptable behavior while using the DH Slack. You can read the full code of conduct at tinyurl.com/DHSlackCode We're open to use for anyone interested both in some combination of "digital" and "humanities" (whatever those mean to you). Expected community behavior outlined by the code of conduct includes welcoming and encouragement for people starting to learn something new, and we do not allow harassing, belittling, or dismissive behavior in any form. We're actively discussing and improving the code of conduct in the #codeofconduct channel. Please report any problems or suggestions with the DH Slack to Amanda Visconti via the Slack (either by direct messaging Amanda Visconti, or writing in the #moderation channel if your comment isn't meant to be private), or via @literature_geek on Twitter or aviscont@purdue.edu. Sound good? Enter your email address below. Signups are now reviewed by one person, manually, in their free time, so it may be up to a week before the latest signups are reviewed and a link to join the DH Slack is sent to you.
