THATCamp LAC 2012 is coming!
From June 1-3, St. Edward’s University will host the 2012 THATCamp for Liberal Arts Colleges.
If you’re interested in the humanities, technology, and liberal arts colleges, you should attend.
But is THATCamp LAC right for you? Are you:
- A humanities professor who uses new technologies in your classes or research?
- A humanities professor who would like to try using new technologies?
- An IT professional who works with humanities faculty and staff?
- A librarian who works in the humanities?
- A non-traditional humanist who is interested in new technologies?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, THATCamp LAC is right for you.
At THATCamp LAC, you’ll get to participate in an “unconference” where you can chat with others like you. The dynamic schedule, voted on by attendees, will let you decide what you want to talk about, and let you change those topics on the fly. As the main THATCamp site puts it, “An unconference is to a conference what a seminar is to a lecture; going to an unconference is like being a member of an improv troupe where going to a conference is (mostly) like being a member of an audience.”
At THATCamp, you’ll also have the opportunity to attend bootcamps – training sessions where you can learn new software, strategies, and theories.
We hope to accomodate everyone who applies. But we’re capping the unconference at 75 people. If we get a lot more applications than that, we’ll have to make some hard calls based on maximizing diversity among the participants.
