  • Announcing Great Lakes THATCamp 2013!


    Following on the success of Great Lakes THATCamp 20102011, and 2012, we’re doing it again for the fourth year in a row–this time in Southfield, MI!

    For those who are unfamiliar, Great Lakes THATCamp (The Humanities And Technology Camp) is a user-generated “unconference” on digital humanities originally inspired by the Center for History and New Media (CHNM) at George Mason University.

    Great Lakes THATCamp will be held at Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, Michigan, on Saturday, September 28th, in conjunction with Network Detroit: Digital Humanities Theory & Practice.

    We will be accepting applications for attendees until Friday August 23rd we reach our max attendance  – but don’t wait too long because we can only accept about 100 attendees and we will be admitting people on a rolling basis. To apply, just visit the Apply section of this website, fill out the form, and you are good to go. Its really that easy! No complicated submission processes like other academic conferences.

    If you are interested in digging deeper into how Great Lakes THATCamp works, who should apply, how to submit a proposal, or what constitutes the “digital humanities” (hint: it isn’t just for humanists), check out the About section.

    We encourage all applicants, participants, organizers, and onlookers to sign up for a Twitter account and follow news, announcements, discussions, and general hype coming from our profile (@GLTHATCamp) and the global THATcamp hashtag (#thatcamp).  Also, if you don’t already have one, go sign up for a Gravatar account.
