Join the Digital Humanities Conversation!

Registration is now open for THATCamp Lehigh Valley 2014. What is THATCamp? Short for "The Humanities and Technology Camp", THATCamp is a user-generated "unconference" on digital humanities. THATCamp was originally the brainchild of the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, where the first THATCamp was held in 2008; since then, more than sixty THATCamps have convened across the U.S. and internationally. THATCamp Lehigh Valley 2014 is being hosted by Library and Technology Services.

What is an "unconference"? Participants in an unconference share their knowledge and actively collaborate with fellow participants rather than simply attend or read a paper. A frequent THATCamp attendee summed up the difference between a THATCamp and a regular academic conference this way: "[THATCamps] give all the good of traditional conferences and nix the endless PowerPoint presentations, sage-on-stage moments, and insane costs."

To register or for more information, go to http://lehigh2014.thatcamp.org. Attendees to THATCamp might also be interested in attending Mary Rizzo on Digital Public Humanities.

THATCamp Lehigh Valley 2014 is generously sponsored by Friends of the Lehigh University Libraries. If your group would also like to sponsor THATCamp Lehigh Valley 2014, please contact Heather Simoneau at hms207@lehigh.edu.
