THATCamp CNY 2016
Saturday and Sunday April 9-10, 2016
Olin Library, Cornell University
Do you use technology for teaching and/or research? Would you like to learn more about available tools and discuss different approaches? If so, come along to the 2016 Central New York THATCamp in Olin Library on April 9-10! THATCamp, which stands for "The Humanities and Technology Camp," is 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. Final determination of which sessions will go ahead takes place on the day of the event, based on the interest of those assembled. Past unconferences have covered everything from developing pedagogical digital projects to visualizing data in innovative ways to using digital tools for research management.
Further information is available on the website (http://cny2016.thatcamp.org/) or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Feel free to propose a session or suggest a topic you want to explore and request a facilitator.
Please register by April 3 (http://cny2016.thatcamp.org/register/). There are no registration fees, and breakfast, lunch, and coffee/tea will be provided. 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.
Co-Sponsored by the Central New York Humanities Corridor, from an award by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Cornell Library, and the Cornell GPSAFC.
