Event: THATCamp-Gainesville, April 24, 2015, at UF

THATCamp Gainesville is on April 24th in Smathers Library East from 8:30am to 6:00pm. THATCamp, The Humanities and Technology Camp, is an unconference hosted by the UF Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere with UF Smathers Libraries with the goal of starting informal and productive conversations about Digital Humanities projects, topics, and skills.
This year, we are expecting sessions on text encoding and data mining, collaborative Wikipedia editing sessions, digital archival projects for libraries and museums, and discussions on engaging students in digital technologies to create new research. You can browse all the session proposals here: http://gainesville2015.thatcamp.org/
Since it is an unconference, session proposals are directly posted on the website, where other participants can read them and comment on them. To get started and to keep up to date, please register on our website. There is no registration cost and the event is free.

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 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’ve heard from folks at UCF, USF, and the University of Miami who plan to attend.
