The Göttingen Centre for Digital Humanities (GCDH) hosted Göttingen’s first THATCamp in September 2014. The Humanities and Technology Camp (THATCamp) is an informal conference bringing people together who are interested in humanities and technology. As an ‘unconference’ the programme is put together by the participants during the event itself. However, informal does not mean disorganised but hands-on, interactive and of course, fun!
THATCamp Göttingen took place on 22 – 23 September 2014. It was organised as a pre-conference event of the 50th Convention of German Historian’s Historikertag, one of Europe’s largest humanities conferences.
Here are some examples of the types of sessions held at THATCamps:
- Digital Literacy for Historians (@ Luxembourg)
- Hacking Humanist: a modest introduction to python (@ Paris)
- Graphic Data Visualisation (@ Ghent)
- Coding the humanities (@ The Hague)
More information and documentation (including video recordíng of Foster-Sessions) is available on the THATCampGoettingen website.
We thank the participants of THATCamp Göttingen!
