So… I know that if you went by the activity on this site, all summer long it looked like THATCamp Theory was going to be, er, purely theoretical. But secretly a bunch of us have been THATCamping like the wind, as it were. THATCamp Theory will be held October 13-14, 2012 in Murray Hall at Rutgers University (New Brunswick, NJ). It will include workshops led by Shannon Mattern, Jean Bauer, Patrick Murray-John, Wendy Chun, and Andrew Lison about which I am exceedingly stoked.
What else will it include? Well, that’s up to you.
I hope to post more in the coming days and weeks, but for now:
- Thanks to support from Microsoft Research, Rutgers University, and Bard College, we have a little bit of funding for travel. We hope to turn this into a lot of funding, because we know there are people from all over who have things to say about theorizing digital humanities and digitizing theory. Details to come.
- If you think your organization would be willing to donate travel funds, please drop me a line: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Registration will open no later than September 1.
- WE WANT YOU! Start thinking about what you’d like to contribute, what you’d like to learn.
