Cleveland City Club, Cleveland, Ohio
October 13, 2012, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
Sponsored by the Center for Public History + Digital Humanities and the Ohio Humanities Council.
(Initial registration deadline of September 15th. If there are not at least 25 participants registered by that point in time, the event will not go forward.)
New this year to the Oral History Association meetings will be the very first THATCamp to be held in conjunction with the conference. This particular THATCamp will focus on bringing together those with an interest in oral history and audio/video production, but it is open to anyone with energy and an interest in digital humanities, regardless of specialization, including academics, librarians, archivists, cultural activists, curators, students, educators, journalists, and professionals in all fields where technology and the humanities intersect.
THATCamp (The Humanities and Technology Camp) is a user-generated “unconference” on digital humanities inspired by the Center for History and New Media (CHNM) at George Mason University. An unconference is not a spectator event. Participants at THATCamp are expected to present their work, share their knowledge, and actively collaborate with fellow participants rather than simply attend.
Sessions at THATCamp will range from software demos to training sessions to discussions of research findings to half-baked rants (but please, no full-blown papers; we’re not here to read or be read to). You should come to THATCamp with something in mind, and once you’re there, you’ll have the opportunity to find people with similar topics and interests and then team up for a joint session. We’ll collaboratively create the session and workshop schedule on the morning of the event, but the general outline is as follows: Registration is from 8:30–9:00AM (coffee and breakfast included). We’ll begin promptly at 9:00AM, break for lunch mid-day and end at about 5:00PM.
If you will be attending the OHA conference, you can register for THATCamp in the "workshops" section of the registration form at http://a3.acteva.com/orderbooking/go/oha2012 .
If you will not be going to the OHA meetings but would still like to participate in this THATCamp, please visit http://oha2012.thatcamp.org/.
