Registration is now open for THATCamp University of Cincinnati 2017. The event, to be held in the university's Walter C. Langsam Library Digital Commons space on the 4th floor, takes place May 1-3.

THATCamp (The Humanities and Technology Camp) is an "unconference" - an open meeting where humanists and technologists of all skill levels and interests gather to learn and to build together in sessions proposed on the spot.

UC's event is free and open to all, including undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff, as well as scholars, archivists, museum professionals, developers and programmers, K-12 teachers and administrators from within and outside UC who have an involvement or interest in digital humanities.

THATCamps are open and online. Participants make sure to share their notes, documents, pictures and other materials from discussions before and after the event on the web and via social media. In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about UC’s first Digital Scholarship Center, a newly launched partnership with UC Libraries and the McMicken College of Arts and Sciences (A&S), with co-directors Arlene Johnson and James Lee.

Sessions for THATCamp University of Cincinnati 2017 will be determined during the opening session on May 1; however, a preliminary schedule has been devised and posted online at http://ucincinnati2017.thatcamp.org/schedule/. May 3 will be a half-day dedicated to gaming called “Digital Game Design for the Classroom” led by Evan Torner, assistant professor of German studies, director of the UC Game Lab.

Those interested in participating in THATCamp University of Cincinnati are asked to register online at http://ucincinnati2017.thatcamp.org/2017/04/10/registration-now-open/.
