Update on THATcamp Medieval @ Kzoo!

Hi all! Planning is underway for the first THATcamp to coincide with the International Congress on Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo. Even though we hope to have a number of medievalists attending, this camp is open to EVERYONE interested in sharing ideas about the Humanities, DH, and Tech.

We’ll get things started on May 7 at the Lee Honors College around 4pm, and run until around 7pm (the Honors College is walking distance from the Valleys and Sangren, for those familiar with our campus). Right now, we are in the process of putting together sessions and discussions dedicated to:

  • game design and the humanities
  • text analysis tools
  • social media and crowdsourcing tools for translating texts

… but this is just the beginning. Want to talk about something else? Have a program or tech skill you’d like to teach? Propose it!

If you’d like to join the discussion, please SIGN UP for a THATcamp account, REGISTER for our camp, and propose a session. THATcamp is open, informal, and participatory, so if you have an idea you’d like to discuss or a project you’d like to talk through, let us know.

See you all in May!
