Applications for THATCamp Theory are now being accepted

Applications are now being accepted for THATCamp Theory!

Media Student faculty member Shannon Mattern will be leading one of the workshops.

THATCamp Theory is devoted to exploring the relations between technology and the theoretical dimensions of humanistic work. Historically, digital humanities has been characterized as hostile to “Theory”–either avowedly or by stereotype. THATCamp Theory is a place for reconsidering that relation, and for trying out ways to put new relations into practice.

Please forward this announcement to all interested parties.

THATCamp Theory will be held October 13-14, 2012 in the Plangere Writing Center, Murray Hall, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ, an easy train ride from New York’s Penn Station.

For prompt responses and for best chances of receiving travel funding, submit your application by Friday 9/7. We will continue to accept applications on a rolling basis thereafter until all spots are filled.
