THATCamp Gainesville 2015 at UF Smathers Library

April 24, 2015 all day
THATCamp, The Humanities and Technology Camp, is an unconference which fosters informal and productive conversations about projects, topics, and skills that connect humanities scholarship/teaching with methods and theories of digital technologies. Since this is an unconference, participants propose sessions directly on the website, where other participants can read and comment on them. You can also write a request to learn more about a particular topic, so that other conference attendees might be able to step up and propose a session about that area. The final schedule will be collaboratively created by the participants on the morning of 24th April. Registration is free, and open to anyone with an interest in the digital humanities, including students, scholars, librarians, archivists, grant-writers, museum professionals, developers and programmers, K-12 teachers, administrators, non-profits and for-profits. It is also a chance to build connections between digital humanities projects…See More
