THATCampTHATCamp@Penn, a humanities and technology camp, will be held on April 25 in Fisher-Bennett Hall.

THATCamp is a collaborative an “unconference,” an informally structured gathering that focuses on digital humanities (http://thatcamp.org). Participants set the agenda and run the sessions with assistance from designated facilitators. THATCamp@Penn will provide a rare opportunity for faculty, graduate students, and academic professionals in different disciplines—and with diverse backgrounds, roles, skills and interests—from across campus to meet in person for a day of informal discussion and collaboration. The morning begins with a group session where participants propose topics (some of which will have been posted previously on the THATCamp blog), vote on the proposals and then together create a schedule of sessions for the day. Participants reconvene as a group in the late afternoon to share conversations and perhaps identify those areas where more formal training on campus may be helpful. THATCamp@Penn requires a minimal commitment of time and could well lead to new initiatives and campus collaborations in the digital humanities.

Registration is now open; see http://penn2012.thatcamp.org/register/
