  • Announcing Great Lakes THATCamp 2011


    We’d like to welcome everyone to Great Lakes THATCamp 2011! Thats right…after the success of Great Lakes THATCamp 2010, we decided to do it again!

    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 beautiful campus of Michigan State University on April 30th and May 1st, 2011 in the Residential College of Arts & Humanities.

    We will be accepting applications until March 11th, 2011 – but don’t wait too long because we can only accept 100 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.

    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.
