What's a THATCamp? THATCamp stands for "The Humanities and Technology Camp." It's an "unconference": a collaborative and informal meeting where scholars and educators of all skill levels learn and build together. There are no lengthy papers or presentations; instead, participants propose and then facilitate workshop-style sessions.
Who should go? Anyone interested in the intersections between the humanities and technology! Our THATCamp will include everything from discussions of digital tools for teaching, including Scalar and Omeka, to playing with the 3D printer with the makerspace team, to a tour of the Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media's new "Signal to Code" exhibit.
How does it work? Propose a session on the website or suggest a topic you want to explore and request a facilitator. Final determination of which sessions will go ahead takes place on the day of the event, based on the interest of those assembled.
Anything else? Yes! Come a day early to hear HASTAC co-founder Cathy Davidson give the plenary lecture "Time and the Modern University," as part of the Society for the Humanities' daylong workshop "Thinking Time" on Friday April 8. You are also welcome to attend the preceding Graduate Student Digital Humanities Symposium in the morning of Saturday April 9--the THATCamp will launch in the afternoon.
Please register here by April 3, so we can order enough food (and T-Shirts!) There are no registration fees, and breakfast, lunch, and coffee/tea will be provided.
