Dear SIG members,

Over the last few months we have solicited member response to a short  
survey in which we proposed five activities the SIG might consider  
undertaking, if there were sufficient interest from its members,  
including individuals willing to contribute.  We thank all of you who  
contributed!  While most of the roughly two dozen respondents thought  
all five were good ideas, three activities in particular would garner  
the most supporting energy: (1) a committee to study and further peer  
review mechanisms; (2) developing a list of experts; and (3) curating  
a collection of GeoHumanities-related syllabi.  Please see the  
complete survey results on our site:  

The co-chairs are in the process of contacting those members who  
expressed interest in working on one or more areas, in order to help  
form related working groups beginning in late July or August, after  
DH2016.  If you would like to be added to a group, but did not  
complete the survey, please contact the SIG Co-Chairs  
(khw2[at]rice[dot]edu or karlg[at]stanford[dot]edu).

We also received comments and several fine suggestions from survey  
respondents—loosely grouped into categories which appear below the  
following results table on our website -  

We look forward to continuing the conversation and starting these  
working groups in the near future.
