THATCamp, The Humanities and Technology Camp, is an unconference which fosters informal and productive conversations about Digital Humanities and Public Humanities projects, topics, and skills. For all who work with and research Digital and Public Humanities, we believe this unconference will be of interest to you. This year, we are expecting sessions on text encoding, community engagement, oral histories, digital mapping, and more. As they are submitted, you can browse all the session proposals here: http://gainesville2016.thatcamp.org/
Since it is an unconference, session proposals are directly posted on the website, where other participants can read them and comment on them. To get started, please register on the website. There is no registration cost. Register: http://gainesville2016.thatcamp.org/register/

THATCamps provide a good space to network and brainstorm. This year, we expect many UF and Santa Fe folks to attend, as well as the dynamic mix of attendees found at other THATCamps from many institutions, including graduate students, scholars, librarians, archivists, museum professionals, developers and programmers, K-12 teachers, administrators, managers, and funders as well as people from the non-profit sector, people from the for-profit sector, and interested amateurs. We’ve heard from folks around the State who plan to attend.
We hope that you will join us.
