IDRH Statement on Diversity and Inclusion

IDRH supports the efforts of groups like Rock Chalk Invisible Hawk to improve the quality of life for marginalized students at the University of Kansas.

IDRH considers issues of diversity and inclusion fundamental to its core mission to expand scholarly forms and practices. We are dedicated to inclusion and diversity in our programming, and we recognize that a truly accessible digital humanities extends far beyond digital tools and standards, and provides people and communities of different abilities, ethnicities, races, genders, sexual orientations, languages and cultures--and of varying levels of access to technology and infrastructure--the capacity to shape and pursue scholarship that addresses their own interests and needs. To that end, our 2015 Digital Humanities Forum, "peripheries, barriers, hierarchies: rethinking access, inclusivity, and infrastructure in global DH practice," focused specifically on issues of inclusion and diversity within digital humanities and within the technological infrastructure that supports our teaching, research and publishing activities.

We strive to foster dialogue about these issues, and we welcome participation, engagement and input from all members of the KU community.
