The Vanderbilt THATCamp (The Humanities And Technology Camp) is an annual unconference co-sponsored by the Vanderbilt Center for Digital Humanities, the Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities, the Curb Center for Art, Enterprise, and Public Policy, the Center for Teaching, The Wond’ry, and the Jean and Alexander Heard Library.
An unconference is an informal, loosely structured gathering of people who share and interest in some designated theme or topic — in this case, the intersections of Humanities and Technology. Rather than following a predetermined agenda of panels and presentations, unconference participants spontaneously pitch, select, and schedule sessions collectively on the first day of the gathering. Sessions are collaborative and participatory in nature.
