Participants to the First National Digital Humanities Workshop held in 2015 at the North-West University (NWU), Potchefstroom, South Africa, decided in principle that a professional DH Association for Southern Africa should be established, and a Steering Committee was elected to further this cause. The Digital Humanities Association of Southern Africa (DHASA) was officially established with the acceptance of its constitution at a general meeting of participants on April 5, 2016 at the Second National Digital Humanities Workshop also held at the NWU.
The Network for Digital Humanities in Africa was born out of the workshop Digital Humanities: the perspective of Africa, a satellite event of DH2019. The workshop (funded by the Lorentz Center, CLARIN ERIC and other sponsors) took place from 1-5 July 2019, in the week before DH2019. The event aimed at the articulation of developments in the field of digital humanities (DH) in Africa
