THATCamp Gainesville
21 April, 9am-4pm
Harn Museum of Art

The UF Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere and Smathers Libraries invites you to THATCamp Gainesville, on 21 April from 9am-4pm in the Harn Museum of Art. THATCamp, The Humanities and Technology Camp, is an unconference which fosters informal and productive conversations about Digital Humanities projects, topics, and skills.

Since this is an unconference, participants propose sessions directly on the website, where other participants can read and comment on them. The final schedule will be collaboratively created by the participants on the morning of 21 April. People are free to drop in and out as needed for schedules. You can browse all the session proposals here: http://gainesville2017.thatcamp.org/

To get started, please register here http://gainesville2017.thatcamp.org/register/

There is no registration cost, and lunch and snacks will be provided.

If you would like to learn more about the kinds of sessions offered at THATCamp or you are ready to Propose a session, please go here: http://gainesville2017.thatcamp.org/propose/

You can also write a request to learn more about a particular topic, so that other conference attendees might be able to step up and propose a session about that area.

THATCamps provide a good space to network and brainstorm. This year, we expect many UF folks to attend, as well as the dynamic mix of attendees found at other THATCamps from many Florida institutions, including graduate students, scholars, librarians, archivists, museum professionals, developers and programmers, K-12 teachers, administrators, managers, and funders as well as people from the non-profit sector, people from the for-profit sector, and interested amateurs.

We hope that you will join us!
