DH@MSU THATCamp, January 2022

Join the Planning Team!

Join the Planning Team for THATCamp January 2022! We are looking for staff, students, and faculty to lend insight, energy, and talent to the planning of this event to jumpstart the second semester of the 2021-22 academic year!

In August 2019, DH@MSU began an annual THATCamp to bring together the community in a day of skill sharing, discussion, and engagement. We shifted the event to an all-virtual format beginning in 2020, organizing full-day THATCamps in August 2020 and August 2021, and debuting a shortened THATCamp Lite in January 2021. For January 2022, we are planning to hold an all-day virtual event, with the date and schedule to be determined by the planning team.

THATCamp (which stands for “The Humanities and Technology Camp”) is a gathering where the agenda is set by attendees on the day of the event based on what people want to learn and/or share. At DH@MSU THATCamp, we create space for meeting fellow members of the community in informal networking sessions, and we encourage people to share their work in impromptu discussions and workshops. There is also time for a project showcase, when community members can share very short prepared or impromptu remarks about their projects and work. Preparation for THATCamps is kept to a minimum in order to allow people in attendance to make the event what they want and to take advantage of the expertise and interests of people there on the day.

Joining this Planning Team will involve the following commitment:

  • One 2.5 hour planning session in early November
  • One 2.5 hour planning session in December/early January
  • Participation on the day of the event
  • One hour-long post-event debrief meeting in late January/early February

Please email Max Evjen (evjendav@msu.edu) by Monday, October 25th if you are interested in joining the team and/or with any questions.
