Free workshops - THATCamp Southeast

THATCamp Southeast ( is a free “unconference” for anyone working at the intersection of the humanities and technology. It will be held at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, on March 4-6, 2011.

We’re currently accepting applications from students, faculty, librarians, technologists, museum professionals, archivists, and anyone else who is interested in the digital (and the) humanities. We’d appreciate it if you’d pass this message on, and post the attached flyer if you can.

Because THATCamp is an “unconference,” our participants will determine the ground we cover. Depending on your interests, we may hold sessions on issues in digital scholarship, pedagogy, curation, software demos, or training sessions. In other words, you won’t present formal talks, papers, or panels. Instead, you’ll share your ideas for potential THATCamp sessions prior to the Camp. At the start of the event, we’ll collectively agree on which conversations will take place.

Our event also includes a one-day “BootCamp”: a series of hands-on workshops to help get digital novices up to speed. So don’t be intimidated if you’re new to digital humanities!

The brief application is available at The deadline is January 9, 2011.

Please email with any questions, and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter ( We look forward to hearing from you!
