THATCampNY “Unconference” Coming to Lincoln Center

Fordham University at Lincoln Center will play host to THATCamp, The Humanities and Technology Camp. The free event is being organized with Hunter College and New York University. The informal sessions melds technology and the humanities for researchers, students, librarians, archivists, curators, educators, and technologists.

THATCampNY: The Humanities and Technology Camp 
Friday, October 5 
4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. 
Saturday, October 6
8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. 
Lincoln Center Campus, 113 W. 60th St., New York, N.Y.

The "unconference” springs from a worldwide series that is devoted to hands-on work and discussion of the intersection of technology and the humanities. No papers are proposed or presented and the agenda is being debated online right now. The topics of discussion will be decided on Friday night and play out over the course of Saturday afternoon. The spontaneous atmosphere allows everyone involved to participate.

In addition to support from the University, the Fordham Digital Humanities Working Group, and Fordham IT, the event is being funded by Hunter College Library, the CUNY Libraries, New York University Libraries, and JSTOR/Ithaka.
