CFP: THATCamp New England, November 13-14

THATCamp: The Humanities and Technology Camp, New England

Thanks to the hard work of an organizing committee, applications are now open for THATCamp New England, to be held in Boston at Wentworth Institute of Technology, November 13-14, 2010. It will follow the standard THATCamp “unconference” format, which means that everyone who attends is expected to present something. (If you’re new to digital humanities, don’t be intimidated! Surely you’ve got a research or teaching puzzle that you’d like to talk about with other people. THATCamps are often a great forum for swapping problems and solutions.)

For those who want more structured training, November 13 will have a BootCamp training track. Travel funding is available (up to $500) for four people (graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, untenured faculty) who plan to attend all of the BootCamp sessions and write up a report about their experience. If you’ve got expertise in a particular area of digital humanities and want to teach a BootCamp session, the organizing committee would love to hear more about your ideas.

Due to space limitations, only 90 people can be accepted to THATCamp New England— apply soon if you’re interested. (As of this post, the organizers have already gotten 17 applicants.)
