The Canadian Society of Digital Humanities/Société canadienne des humanités numériques (CSDH-SCHN) stands in support of open inquiry and scholarly communication, as outlined in our position on diversity and inclusion. For this reason we stand in opposition to any action that would limit the expression of these core academic values, including restricting travel or access on the basis of nationality, religion, gender, race, or other means of aggregating individuals. This opposition includes the recent executive orders restricting travel or return to the United States.
As Canada’s national DH organization attached to both our own annual conference, held at Ryerson University in Toronto this year, and DH2017, this year’s annual conference of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) in Montreal, two events which draw large international audiences of professional scholars and students, we are deeply concerned about the effect recent world events will have on the ability of our colleagues to come together in the spirit of open inquiry and scholarly communication. We offer our assistance to the organizational teams of both events to assist in accommodating any changes that may need to be made to either the program or how the program is delivered. Further, as a constituent organization of ADHO, we will continue to lobby for future events to be located in places that support freedom of movement and other principles that are essential to the pursuit of academic excellence and the enjoyment of basic human rights.
