Subject: New ACLS Commission on Future of DIgital Humanites
Date: Fri, 17 Dec 2021 10:03:01 -0500
My apologies for being late in sharing this important development; I've been immersed in the December CNI virtual and in person meetings.

The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) has recently announced that it is launching a commission on the future of digital work in the humanities, building on the 2005-2006 work of an earlier commission chaired  by John Unsworth (currently of the University of Virginia) that produced the report "Our Cultural Commonwealth" , see

The new commission, " Fostering and Sustaining Diverse Digital Scholarship", which is being funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities, is described here. It has a stellar composition, which includes many members of the CNI community, and has important continuity with its predecessor commission.

I hope to incorporate reports on this vital work in upcoming CNI events.

Clifford Lynch
Director, CNi
