THATCamp coming to Harrisburg, October 25-26

October 17, 2013

THATCamp, a hybrid conference/unconference interdisciplinary event focusing on the Digital Humanities is coming to Harrisburg! If you have any interest in the Digital Humanities, including supporting faculty projects, or coordinating local history projects through the library, this event is for you. I plan to attend and have proposed two sessions with faculty from my institution about using Zotero and WordPress for the digital humanities. I hope to see you there!  To register, select the Registration menu option at the top.

THATCamp Harrisburg 2013

Call for Participation

October 25th and 26th, Harrisburg University


What Is THATCamp?

THATCamp stands for The Humanities And Technology Camp.  THATCamp Harrisburg is a professional development opportunity for humanities professionals in both academic and non-academic settings. It serves to introduce newcomers to the tools and purposes of the Digital Humanities and give veterans an opportunity to deepen and broaden their skills, and to share them with others.

THATCamp Harrisburg offers opportunities for new conversations and relationships, and contributes to further work in the digital humanities that will benefit the Central Pennsylvania region, as well as the larger community of humanities professionals.
