We would like to invite historians and technologists of all skill levels interested in digital humanities to THATCamp HSS 2014. The Humanities and Technology Camp, is an open, welcoming meeting where participants learn and build together in sessions proposed on the spot. Anyone who is working on a digital humanities project, or wants to learn about starting one, is welcome.

THATCamp HSS 2014  is being organized by the IsisCB and collaborating faculty at Arizona State University. It is being held in conjunction with the History of Science Society conference this November in Chicago (attendance at the conference / membership in the society are NOT required). The camp meets on Thursday, November 6th, 2014 at the Gleacher Center in downtown Chicago (only about a fifteen-minute walk from the Westin Hotel, where the HSS conference is held). The camp will last from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

All are invited, but we have a capping attendance to 50 people, so please sign up early. The cost of the event is $20 (collected at the door), which helps cover some of the costs for holding the event.

If you are new to unfconference events you can learn more about THATCamps and how they work.
