THATCamp OSU will take place Saturday, April 28th, from 8am to 5pm, in William Oxley Thompson Memorial Library. If you are interested in the intersection of technology and the humanities, and enjoy interacting with your colleagues in an informal, unconference setting, please consider joining us for the day. Go here to register, or click ‘Continue reading’ for more details.
Who should attend?
THATCamp OSU is open to anyone, but will be of most interest to faculty and graduate students in the humanities, IT professionals, librarians and library staff, administrators, and anyone else working with technology to support research and teaching. The event is meant to kick off a campus-wide conversation about digital humanities at OSU, so our goal is a diverse set of participants!
What is an unconference?
An unconference is an informal conference that does not have a pre-determined program. Instead, participants propose and lead sessions and the schedule is determined during the first session of the day. (One exception at THATCamp OSU: A special plenary session led by our guest facilitator, Julia Flanders.) Instead of traditional presentations, sessions are focused on discussion and collaborative work.
