Around DH 2020 revisits the goals of the original Around DH in 80 Days, in order to introduce new and veteran audiences to the global field of DH scholarly practice by engaging with current DH projects from around the world. *Around DH in 80 Days* was pathbreaking in its work to raise awareness of the existence of DH work going on around the globe. In the 5+ years that have passed, the existence of this DH work is no longer in question. Through Around DH 2020 we hope to take the next step: surfacing the networks of people and sources behind these projects, the tools used, and what these projects mean. What does the project team hope to accomplish with this work? What have they learned in the process? To accomplish this, each piece is written by someone associated with the project, responding in their own words to questions posed by Around DH 2020.
