SIUe THATCamp 2016

Theme: Engaging Communities through Digital Humanities Registration is open for the SIUE THATCamp 2016. The unconference will be held June 11-12, 2016 on the beautiful Southern Illinois University Edwardsville campus, located just 25 miles from St. Louis. THATCamp stands for “The Humanities and Technology Camp.” It is an unconference, which is a small, open, inexpensive meeting where humanists and technologists of all skill levels learn and build together. The breakout sessions at this unconference are loosely formed prior to the conference and finalized the first day of the unconference. This allows for a dynamic, collaborative atmosphere as opposed to a more formal, and competitive format of a typical DH conference setting. The theme of this year’s THATCamp is “Engaging Communities through Digital Humanities.” We invite you to come and share your ideas, as we investigate opportunities where digital humanities and people outside the academic world intersect. How can a digital humanities project impact, empower, or engage a person, a town, a country, or the world? Please share and invite your colleagues and students! All are welcome!
