In July 2017, McGill University and Université de Montréal hosted the 2017 conference of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO). The four local organizers and members of our centre (Dominic Forest, Cecily Raynor, Michael Sinatra, and Stéfan Sinclair) welcomed over 900 delegates on the McGill campus in downtown Montreal for 4 days of intellectual exchanges, a deep engagement with practical and theoretical aspects of Digital Humanities, and the question of open access highlighted in our chosen theme ‘Access/Accès’. This was the first time two Quebec universities jointly hosted the annual Digital Humanities (DH) gathering, and only the third time the conference had taken place in Canada since the founding of ADHO over 30 years ago (first in Toronto in 1997, and then in Victoria in 2005). The conference was also officially bilingual in French and English for the first time, since Canada is a bilingual country.
The selection of papers just published in the special issue of Digital Scholarship in the Humanities fittingly gives an overview of the final programme prepared by the Program committee under the leadership of Diane Jakacki.
