THATCamp stands for “The Humanities and Technology Camp.” It is an unconference: an open, inexpensive meeting where humanities scholars and technologists of all skill levels learn and build together in sessions proposed on the spot. An unconference is to a conference what a seminar is to a lecture, what a pick-up game of Ultimate Frisbee is to an NBA game, or what a jam band is to a symphony orchestra: it’s more informal and more participatory. Put simply, THATCamp is a place for you to indicate what you would like to learn in this area, and work with others to do so.
THATCamp-Gainesville is an opportunity for anyone in the UF and Gainesville communities with an interest in culture and digital technologies to come together, share their work, and learn new skills for building and analyzing digital projects across the humanities. It is also a chance to build connections between digital humanities projects across North Florida. And, if you don't know what the 'digital humanities' are, then come find out. Please visit the conference website to register, suggest a session proposal, comment on the session proposals made by others, and generally learn more about this event.
THATCamp Gainesville is organized by a planning committee of the UF Digital Humanities Working Group (DHWG), a group of academic and library faculty, staff, and graduate students who meet monthly to discuss current topics at the intersection of digital technologies and the humanities and support each other in project development.
