The annual conference of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations arrived in Australia in 2015, but this was not the first time Australia had welcomed some of the world’s leading thinkers to its shores.¹ Just more than a hundred years earlier, in 1914, the British Association for the Advancement of Science held its annual meeting in Australia. In earlier years, the association had journeyed to Canada and to South Africa, but this was its first tour of Australia (Robertson; Love). One senior Australian scientist heralded its arrival as “a great event in the history of Imperial unity” (Masson, 5).
