Registration is now open!

Over the years, THATCamps have been a place where humanities scholars learn about and exchange ideas for how to use technology for research and in the classroom. Projects have been conceived, connections made between scholars, and hundreds introduced to digital humanities in a relaxed, fun, and informal environment.

With the AHA and the MLA meetings happening in the same city at the same time for the first time in 50 years, we are excited about the opportunity to create further connections and share ideas across disciplines.

What makes THATCamp great is you, so register now, and plan to join us in Chicago on January 2nd, 2019. You do not need to be attending AHA or MLA to participate. All are welcome!

Participation is on a first-come, first-served basis, but please register before December 17th. When you submit your registration you should receive an email confirming that it’s been received, and another one once your registration has been approved. Please contact me if you have any problems.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Announcing the first ever joint AHA/MLA THATCamp

We are very excited to announce the first THATCamp that will be jointly held by MLA and AHA to coincide with annual meetings occurring simultaneously in Chicago. Generously hosted by the Institute for the Humanities at the University of Illinois Chicago, THATCamp AHA-MLA will take place on January 2, 2019.

This will be a great opportunity to talk to digital humanists across the disciplinary divide and share perspectives on digital methods and approaches with a broader range of scholars.

We’ll be opening registration on a first-come first-served basis very soon so watch for further announcements.

Hope to see you in Chicago in the new year!
