THATCamp Shakespeare 2017
Wednesday, April 5th, 2017
The University of Georgia DigiLab
In 2016, the world celebrated the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. To commemorate the end of this “Year of Shakespeare,” as well as the return of the Shakespeare Association of America Annual Meeting to Atlanta, the Folger Shakespeare Library and the University of Georgia are hosting a THATCamp at the University of Georgia’s DigiLab on Wednesday, April 5th, 2017.
A unique kind of “unconference,” THATCamp stands for The Humanities And Technology Camp. We encourage local digital humanists as well as far-flung Shakespeareans coming to Atlanta for the SAA Annual Meeting to visit our new digital learning environment, to discover our new initiatives in Shakespeare studies and in Digital Humanities, and to share your digital Shakespearean skills.
Registration will open in late 2016 or early 2017. There will be a modest fee to help defray costs of the event. For those making travel plans, we plan to help delegates with transportation between Atlanta and Athens.
Questions, suggestions, or ideas? Tell us what you want (what you really, really want) to share and learn about deep-fried digital Shakespeares by sending an email to moc.l1506060931iamg@1506060931xahsp1506060931macta1506060931ht1506060931, and get excited. Athens, GA is beautiful in the springtime—and no, not everything is deep-fried.
