Vanderbilt THATCamp 2018

THATCamp Vanderbilt 2018 will take place Friday, October 26-Saturday, October 27 at the Curb Center and First Amendment Forum on the Vanderbilt University Campus.

This year’s THATCamp will focus on digital literacies and their usefulness, both within and outside “traditional” research contexts.  As always, THATCamp participants may propose a session on any topic, but we especially encourage sessions on themes such as:

  • Digital literacy in and outside the classroom
  • Career building blocks with digital scholarship
  • Digital tools for public engagement
  • Digital research methods across disciplines
  • Digital tools for addressing inequality:  bridging digital divides

We’ll kick things off at 4pm Friday, October 26 with a reception, Dork Shorts, and unconference scheduling, then convene at 9 am Saturday, October 27 for breakfast, keynote, and breakout sessions.

The keynote event will feature alumni of the Vanderbilt HASTAC Scholars program discussing the role digital literacy has played in their career paths:  Corey Duclos, Director of the Keck Center for Language Study, Colgate University, and Zoe LeBlanc, Digital Humanities Developer, Scholars’ Lab, University of Virginia.

All events will take place in the Vanderbilt Curb Center, 1801 Edgehill Ave., Nashville, TN 37212.

Lunch and breakfast will be served on October 27; please indicate any dietary restrictions when registering for the program.
