This&THATCamp Sussex Humanities Lab
19-20 May 2016
Sussex Humanities Lab, University of Sussex
On 19-20 May 2016 This&THATCamp Sussex Humanities Lab will take place at the University of Sussex. THATCamp stands for ‘The Humanities and Technology Camp.’ It is an unconference: an open meeting aimed at attendees of various backgrounds and skill levels (more info on the format can be found at http://this.thatcamp.org/about/).
This&THATCamp Sussex Humanities Lab brings together humanists, technologists, educators, and learners to share, build, and make together around the theme of ‘Scale’ and is spread over two days to enable a fruitful balance of doing and talking, of teaching and demonstrating, of hacking and yacking.
Sessions at THATCamp usually range from general discussions (Talk sessions) to project-based hackathons or writeathons (Make sessions) to technology skills workshops (Teach sessions) to miscellaneous experiments (Play sessions). We anticipate the event focusing on hands-on sessions that explore methods, practice, and strategies for working with humanities data at scale, be that close up or at a distance; but in reality, anything that isn’t a standard talk goes!
Proposed sessions on a variety of topics are starting to appear at http://this.thatcamp.org/category/session-proposals/ and the event will be accompanied by a keynote from Melodee Beals (Loughborough) on ‘A Series of Small Things: The Case Study in the Age of Big Data’.
To register please head to http://this.thatcamp.org/register/ and fill out the form. Note that the event is free but spaces are limited. All are welcome though priority will be given to doctoral students. Questions and queries should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
