Syracuse University Libraries to Host the Humanities and Technology (THAT) Camp
Syracuse University Libraries is hosting the Humanities and Technology Camp Central New York (THATCamp CNY) on Friday, Oct. 25, in Bird Library. The camp is a free, informal conference for anyone interested in the humanities or technology at any skill level.
The program and agenda is not set in advance, but rather is created by all participants the morning of the conference based on the attendees’ interests and feedback. The emphasis is on productive, collegial work and free-form discussion. THATCamp is a great opportunity for established digital humanists to share methodologies or for beginners to learn the ropes.
THATCamp CNY welcomes students, faculty, staff, scholars, librarians, archivists, museum professionals, developers and programmers, teachers, community members and others to participate. It is designed to be a spontaneous, timely and interdisciplinary event. There are no lengthy proposals, papers, presentations or product demonstrations. Anyone interested can register to attend.
All attendees are welcome to propose a session or topic on the THATCamp CNY 2019 website on any subject relevant to the humanities and technology.
THATCamp CNY will be facilitated by Patrick Williams, librarian for literature, rhetoric and digital humanities at Syracuse University Libraries.
“As the academic hub of Syracuse University, the Libraries is delighted to host THATCamp again. The energy and intellectual conversations that flow from participants contributes to the University’s inclusive environment and development of engaged citizens and scholars in a changing global society,” says David Seaman, dean of Syracuse University Libraries, University librarian and interim dean of School of Information Studies.
