THATCamp and workshops at DH2010

Those planning to attend DH2010 might be interested in a series of extra events that are happening in the days immediately before the conference itself.

(a) First, there are seven full- and half-day workshops that are scheduled for immediately before DH2010.  All are also hosted at King’s in the same building where DH2010 will occur.  They are all free.  You can read about them at the conference website page:

http://dh2010.cch.kcl.ac.uk/academic-programme/pre-conference-workshops.html

and register to attend one or more of them via the DH2010 conference registration system.

(b) Second, there will be, for the first time, a THATCamp scheduled to occur with the Digital Humanities conference. THATCamps are user-generated “unconference” on digital humanities.  The THATCamp idea has been developed by the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, and THATCamp London is jointly sponsored by CHNM, CCH and CeRch at King’s and ADHO. You can read more about the London THATCamp at:

http://www.thatcamplondon.org/

and you can apply to attend via the THATCamp registration form.  The deadline for the THATCamp application is 10 May, 2010.

These events promise to further enrich what is already going to be an exciting experience at DH2010.  I hope that many DH2010 attendees can join us for the workshops and the THATCamp too.
