We are excited to be able to offer two afternoons of THATCamp at HSS this year. THATCamp will take place on Thursday July 25 and Friday July 26, from 1:30-6pm, with a coffee break at 3:30-4pm. We hope in splitting up THATCamp, interested people can stop by when it is convenient for them, rather than having to set aside an entire day.
If you’ve never attended THATCamp, or “The Humanities and Technology Camp,” it is an unconference. An unconference is an open, inexpensive meeting where humanists and technologists of all skill levels learn and build together in sessions proposed on the spot.
We are looking forward to inviting two keynote speakers, one for each afternoon, to speak on important issues that face the humanities in the use of technology.
Our schedule each afternoon will look something like this:
- keynote + Q/A: 1:30-2:30
- session 1: 2:30-3:30
- Break 3:30-4:00
- session 2: 4:00-5:00
- session 3: 5:00-6:00
Each session will be organized in smaller chunks of time: making the schedule (10 min), then three 15-min. sessions — with breakouts if there are enough people.
Please register for THATCampHSS here and be sure to propose your topic for a presentation on either day.
