Registration Open for THATCamp ASECS2012

Registration is now open for THATCamp ASECS2012.

On March 21, 2012 we will be holding a one-day THATCamp as a pre-conference event at ASECS. It will be an opportunity to discuss and debate issues in the digital humanities related to eighteenth-century studies in an informal and open environment. For anyone who is new to the idea of THATCamp, the event will be an unconference. THATCamps are self-organizing, free events ‘where humanists and technologists meet to work together for the common good’. For more information go to THATCamp.org. THATCamp ASECS will be an opportunity for anyone attending ASECS, and anyone else who wants to join in, to discuss the use of digital resources, tools and methods for eighteenth-century studies.

THATCamp will start at 8:30 and finish at 4:00. From 4:00 to 6:00 there will be a workshop for faculty, graduate students, independent scholars, and anyone who is interested about how to do research and publish peer-reviewed articles and scholarly editions in 18thConnect. To wind up what we’re hoping will be a very good day of digital eighteenth-century studies, the Initiative for Digital Humanities, Media, and Culture (IDHMC) at Texas A&M University will host a cash-bar with finger-food from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

So click the link to register, think about the sessions you might want to lead or participate in, and plan to be in San Antonio a day early for what should be an excellent day of the digital eighteenth century.
