/*Intersectionality in Digital Humanities*

The last few years have witnessed a movement towards a more open and 
inclusive Digital Humanities field. The Alliance for Digital Humanities 
Organizations has appointed a Multilingualism/Multiculturalism committee 
to address these issues and accepted a special interest group, 
GlobalOutlook ::Digital Humanities, to try to break down barriers 
between countries in the Global North and the Global 
South.Intersectional studies are also developing within DH to try to 
bring a plurality of voices into the conversation.
