There’s a new THATCamp being planned for April 26! Registration is not yet open, but please read more about the event and come back soon.
If you are interested in how technology is changing—or can change—the work of scholars in the Humanities and Social Sciences, then we invite you to attend the first ever THATCamp on Saturday, April 26th at the George Washington University. THATCamp, or The Humanities and Technology Camp, exists to bring scholars and technologists of every skill level together to learn how to integrate digital technology into their teaching and research. Topics covered may include academic blogging, social media in the classroom, digital research methods, web-based class projects, digital portfolios, quantitative humanities, scenarios and gaming, 3D modeling, primary source digital repositories, and online publishing. If you want to host a workshop on a tool or platform or teach about, say, topic modeling, this is the place to do that. If you want to run a session on Wikipedia to correct or create entries, that is fine. We also want you to propose sessions to talk about challenges and opportunities for new scholarship, to reflect on recent experiences, to share tips on using new media or tools effectively, to exchange methodologies for interdisciplinary innovation. Reading your long papers out loud are not permitted, but we will have a lightning round where in 3 minutes or less you can show us what you’ve done and get feedback. The THATCamp agenda is participatory and created on the spot, so come prepared to pitch an idea for a session to TALK, MAKE, TEACH, or PLAY.
