Announcing THATCamp SEA

We are excited to announce that the 2013 meeting of The Society of Early Americanists will feature a half-day THATCamp, an “unconference” that brings together scholars in the humanities with technologists, information scientists, and anyone else interested in learning more about the intersection between humanistic inquiry and digital technology.

THATCamp SEA will be held on Wednesday, February 27, from 1-6pm at the conference hotel. Please see <sea2013.thatcamp.org/register/> to register for the event, which will include workshops on Omeka, an open-source digital publishing platform designed specifically for scholars, librarians, and archivists, as well as on Data Visualization, which will explore several basic tools for visualizing literary and historical data. THATCamp SEA will also feature break-out sessions on topics proposed by THATCampers in the weeks leading up to the event.

Preliminary schedule:

  • 1:00-1:30 Welcome
  • 1:40-2:30 Workshop on Omeka by Amanda French
  • 2:40-3:30 Workshop on Data Visualization by Lauren Klein
  • 3:30-3:50 coffee break
