Humanities & technology camp at Boise State

Interested in the intersection of the humanities and technology? Then attend the fourth THATCamp Boise State from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 13 in the Student Union Building. THATCamp stands for The Humanities and Technology Camp.

THATCamps are user-generated unconferences, "an open, inexpensive meeting where humanists and technologists of all skill levels learn and build together in sessions proposed on the spot.”

The theme for this year's THATCamp is “Access, Empowerment, and Expression.” Educators, developers, coders, geeks, artists, students, teachers, historians, librarians, authors, hackers, archivists, philosophers, actors, creatives, or those interested in the humanities and/or technology are encouraged to attend.

In addition to local keynote speakers, our own ScholarWorks librarians Amber Sherman and Michelle Armstrong will lead a workshop on open access and author rights.

This is a full-day event, free and open to the public. Breakfast and lunch will be provided, with free parking available next to the Student Union Building. Space is limited so registration is required.
