Japanese Association for Digital Humanities

The Japanese Association for Digital Humanities was created in order to surmount issues of collaboration between Japan and other international digital humanities organizations. Prior to its formation, Japanese digital humanities specialists were faced with basic difficulties, such as digitization Japanese characters, and were thereby prevented from operating effectively under the rubric of Digital Humanities in Europe and North America. The Japanese Association for Digital Humanities responds to this by working to resolve these issues and creating an environment for productive research. The Japanese Association for Digital Humanities hosts an annual conference that welcomes international scholars to explore and discuss digital humanities topics.
