  • Announcing Great Lakes THATCamp 2012


    Following on the success of Great Lakes THATCamp 2010 and 2011 at Michigan State University, we’ve decided to do it again… but in Canada, eh?

    For those who are unfamiliar, 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.

    Great Lakes THATCamp will take place on the lovely campus of Western University in London, Ontario on April 20th, 21st and 22nd, 2012.

    We will be accepting applications until March 15th, 2012 – but don’t wait too long because we can only accept about 80 attendees and we will be admitting people on a rolling basis.  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.

    If you are interested in digging deeper into how Great Lakes THATCamp works, who should apply, or what constitutes the “digital humanities” (hint: it isn’t just for humanists), check out the About section.

    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.
