On 28 and 29 January 2015 there will be a THATCamp event in Utrecht, Drift 25. THATCamp stands for ‘The Humanities and Technology Camp.’

It is an open, informal meeting where humanists and technologists of all skill levels learn and build together in sessions proposed on the spot. Moreover, David Berry (University of Sussex), editor of the standard work Understanding Digital Humanities, will be keynote speaker.

The first THATCamp in The Netherlands was held in The Hague in January 2014. Among the historians and information scientists who were present, there was a clear interest in a follow-up. THATCamp Utrecht aims to meet these demands. All Humanities scholars in the Netherlands who want to share their questions or experiences regarding the use of digital applications in their research and education, are welcome to join in. The focus will be on digital practice and on reflection based on practical experience.

Sessions at THATCamp usually range from general discussions (Talk sessions) to project-based hackathons or writeathons (Make sessions) to technology skills workshops (Teach sessions) to miscellaneous experiments (Play sessions).
