Why a THATCamp @ the International Congress on Medieval Studies?
It seems a waste not to harness the intellect that is found in Kalamazoo during the annual migration of Medievalists in May of each year. We would like to offer time and space to the conversation of the Digital Humanities. The agenda is vague at this point, perhaps equally elusive as the definition of DH. The medievalist perspective does not have to dictate the content of the day. We can open it up as broadly or close it down as narrowly as we like.
I've proposed the date of May 7, 2014, the day before the Congress opens so not to interfere with the sessions during the Congress itself.
The location is to be determined though I hope to meet in the University Center for the Humanities in Knauss Hall.
Ilse and I will announce moderators as we identify them. In the meantime, think about some topics you would like to propose and use the "Propose" page to start the conversation. Then on May 7, we will collectively decide which topics to address.
