About THATCamp LAC

Not sure what a THATCamp even is? Check out our Frequently Asked Questions.

THATCamp Liberal Arts Colleges will focus on a particular academic setting—the liberal arts college—rather than a particular geographic region. We envision two main tracks in the unconference. One will focus on doing digital humanities work at an LAC, where one is more likely to be the lone DHer on campus and must build stronger off-campus networks. The other track will focus on technology and pedagogy. We also hope to encourage undergraduates to apply for THATCamp LAC. We hope to get undergrads, grad students, professors, librarians, and other academics talking productively about the intersections of digital humanities, technology, and pedagogy at liberal arts colleges.

A few early details:

  • Where: St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin.
  • When: June 4-5, 2011
  • Who: 75 professors, librarians, technical specialists, and undergraduates interested in the intersection of technology and the liberal arts
  • Info: the best source will be our Twitter stream @thatcamplac

We hope to start accepting applications toward the end of October. Applications will be open until Monday, April 18.

THATCamp LAC will run concurrently with THATCamp Prime at the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University. We’re excited about this convergence, and we’ll be planning several virtual, joint sessions between the two unconferences. We hope this will spark some interesting dialogues between the liberal arts college and R1 communities about digital research and pedagogy.
