Emily Murphy and Maya Bielinski, members of the English Department’s graduate community, are organizing Queen's University’s inaugural, one-day THATCamp.
THATCamp, The Humanities and Technology Camp, will be held in the North Reading Room, Douglas Library, 9 February 2013, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. The is an open meeting where humanists and technologists of all skill levels learn and build together in sessions proposed on the spot. This is a non-hierarchical, non-disciplinary and inter-professional event on Queen's Campus.
THATCamp is a world-wide group of informal conferences that are non-hierarchical, non-disciplinary and inter-professional. Everyone participates, including in the task of setting an agenda or program. The emphasis is on productive, collegial, or free-form discussion that crosses boundaries, forges new relationships, and illuminates new and on-going scholarship across disciplines. We welcome participation from faculty, graduate students, and professionals in humanities, social sciences, archival studies, library science, cultural studies, fine arts, film studies, linguistics, or anyone with energy and an interest in the humanities and/or technology.
Propose a session. Tell the organizers what you’d like to learn. Come ready for new discussions and connections between the humanities and technology. For more information and to register, go to http://queensu2013.thatcamp.org/.
Submission deadline: Midnight on Friday, 25 January 25 2013.
