Call for Applications – THATCamp Southeast 2011 – Due January 9th
THATCamp Southeast is a free “unconference” for anyone working at the intersection of the humanities and technology. (THATCamp = The Humanities and Technology Camp.) It will be held at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, on March 4-6, 2011.
We’re currently accepting applications from students, faculty, librarians, technologists, museum professionals, archivists, and anyone else who is interested in the digital (and the) humanities.
Because THATCamp is an “unconference,” our participants will determine the ground we cover. Depending on your interests, we may hold sessions on issues in digital scholarship, pedagogy, curation, software demos, or training sessions. In other words, you won’t present formal talks, papers, or panels. Instead, you’ll share your ideas for potential THATCamp sessions prior to the Camp. At the start of the event, we’ll collectively agree on which conversations will take place.
Our event also includes a one-day “BootCamp”: a series of hands-on workshops to help get digital novices up to speed. So don’t be intimidated if you’re new to digital humanities!
The brief application is now available. The deadline is January 9, 2011. More information can be found on the THATCamp Southeast website. Also, you can get a sense of the kinds of sessions likely to be offered at the event by viewing the final schedule for the recent THATCamp Virginia.
If you’re interested in attending, please let CFT assistant director Derek Bruff know!
