‘Unconference’ to Discuss Issues of Digital Frontier

A gathering to participate in an informal “unconference” on the issues of the digital frontier will be held this weekend at the UCF Center for Emerging Media, 500 W. Livingston St., Orlando.

THATCamp is an “unconference,” meaning that there are no formal presentations in the sessions, but there will be workshops and discussions on topics such as fostering interaction and participation using Omeka, networking for research and teaching, scanning photos to create public and personal archives, a RICHES MI workshop and others.

Invited is anyone who is involved in digital teaching, research or dissemination of digital work.

THATCamp, which stands for The Humanities and Technology, will be 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Feb. 16 and 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Feb. 17. Free and breakfast and lunch will be provided.

The camp is free, but organizers ask that participants register at http://florida2013.thatcamp.org/apply/.

The event is hosted by the History Department, RICHES of Central Florida, and Center for Research and Education in Arts, Technology + Entertainment at the University of Central Florida.
