Announcing THATCamp Columbus

September 10, 2009 by

THATCamp (The Humanities And Technology Camp)  is a user-generated “unconference” on digital humanities inspired by the Center for History and New Media (CHNM) at George Mason University.  At the THATcamp 2009, CHNM floated the idea of holding regional camps around the country, an idea that quickly took hold, leading to events in Austin, Texas (THATcamp Austin) and Washington state (THATcamp Pacific Northwest), as well as a planned event in Michigan (THATcamp Great Lakes).  THATcamp Columbus, a collaborative effort of the Ohio Humanities Council and the Center for Public History and Digital Humanities at Cleveland State University, will be held in January 2010 in Columbus, Ohio.

We will begin accepting applications on Thursday, September 10th.  Need a little time to think about what you would like to present?  Don’t wait too long, we only have room for 50 attendees!

Apply Now!

We encourage all applicants, participants, organizers, and onlookers to sign up for a Twitter account and follow news, announcements, discussions, and general hype coming from our profile (@thatcampcbus) and the global THATcamp hashtag (thatcamp @" href="">#thatcamp).  And of course, subscribe to the THATcamp Columbus RSS feed.  Once applicants are accepted, they will begin posting their session ideas on this site, fostering a lively pre-conference community.  For more information, see the About page or drop us a line at
