  • Announcing Great Lakes THATCamp!


    We’d like to welcome everyone to Great Lakes THATCamp!

    Great Lakes THATCamp (The Humanities And Technology Camp) is a user-generated “unconference” on digital humanities originally inspired by the Center for History and New Media (CHNM) at George Mason University.

    At THATcamp 2009, the CHNM floated the idea of holding regional camps around the country, an idea that quickly took hold, leading to events in Austin, Texas (THATcamp Austin) Washington state (THATcamp Pacific Northwest), Columbus, OH (THATCamp Columbus) as well as planned events in California (THATcamp SoCal), and Paris.

    Great Lakes THATCamp will take place on the beautiful campus of Michigan State University on March 20th and 21st, 2010 in the Residential College of Arts & Humanities.

    We will be accepting applications until February 10th, 2010 – but don’t wait too long because we can only accept 75 attendees.  To apply, just visit the Apply section of this website, fill out the form, and you are good to go.  Its really that easy!  No complicated submission processes like other academic conferences.

    We encourage all applicants, participants, organizers, and onlookers to sign up for a Twitter account and follow news, announcements, discussions, and general hype coming from our profile (@GLTHATCamp) and the global THATcamp hashtag (#thatcamp).  Also, if you don’t already have one, go sign up for a Gravatar account.
