What? An unconference focused on the humanities and technology! THATCamp Piedmont 2016 will be an informal, one-day gathering to share ideas, insights, resources, questions, problems, tools, methods, and projects about digitally inflected humanities research and pedagogy.
When? Wednesday, May 11, 2016
Where? The Reynolda Campus of Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC.
How? Participants create the program on the first day, rather than a planning committee creating the program beforehand. We won’t deliver presentations — instead, all participants in an unconference are expected to talk and work with fellow participants in every session. An unconference is to a conference what a seminar is to a lecture; going to an unconference is like being a member of an improv troupe, whereas going to a conference is (mostly) like being a member of an audience.
Why? To provide an open, inexpensive meeting where humanists and technologists of all skill levels learn and build together in sessions proposed on the spot.
