SU Libraries is hosting THATCamp Central New York (CNY) on April 11–12 in Bird Library. THATCamps — The Humanities and Technology Camp — are user-generated, unconference-style meetings for humanists and technologists of all skill levels. An informal conference program is created by all participants on the first day, rather than in advance by a program committee. The emphasis is on productive, collegial work or free-form discussion; there are no lengthy proposals, papers, presentations, or product demos. THATCamp is a great opportunity for established digital humanists to share methodologies or for beginners to learn the ropes.
If you’re interested, apply now; then feel free to propose a session on the THATCamp CNY 2014 site. Sessions can be on any topic relevant to the humanities and technology. Final determination of sessions will happen on the first morning of the event, based on the interests of those present.
THATCamp CNY welcomes graduate students, faculty, scholars, librarians, archivists, museum professionals, developers and programmers, teachers, community members, and others.
