RU-Newark librarian organizes digital humanities brainstorming/collaboration event, Fri. April 4th

March 31, 2014

The growing national movement of digital humanities is characterized by a robust cross-fertilization of ideas and creative efforts to find new scholarly uses for an array of digital tools. Krista White, digital humanities librarian in the John Cotton Dana Library, is working to make sure the exciting possibilities for digital humanities are actively encouraged in and around the Rutgers Newark campus.

Krista is serving as lead organizer for THATCamp (The Humanities And Technology Camp) Newark Collaboration 2014, on Friday April 4th. This whole day 'unconference' provides a supportive setting for practitioners of and novices to the digital humanities to brainstorm projects, learn about new digital tools and skills, look under the hood of existing digital projects, and meet new colleagues.

Faculty, graduate students, and staff from the New Jersey Institute of Technology, Princeton University, Stevens Institute of Technology, the University of Pennsylvania, the Newark Public Library, and Rutgers' Camden, New Brunswick, and Newark campuses have already signed up to attend the April 4th event. Space is limited so those interested in attending are encouraged to RSVP beforehand.

THATCamp Newark Collaboration 2014 will be held in the Paul Robeson Campus Center, from 8:30 am - 5:00 pm. Attendees are welcome to attend some or all of the day's activities.
