Given all its activity and actors, I'm puzzled that (apart from Canada,
as far as I know) digital humanities has not formed any learned
societies or been admitted to their company. If true, why is this? It
would be useful to know, country by country, what equivalents there are,
or perhaps better, by what means a discipline is recognised as such, and
if digital humanities numbers among the learned societies.

My vote for a destination is there.

Where from here? Full integration of GIS and archival work across the
boards, so that GIS lists authors/artists/other figures on a timeline by
location and author archives reference back to GIS and other figures within
that timeline. I would love to see this globally, with all authors,
integrating all sites into a world humanities map.
