Last year, one of our most popular sessions was prompted by this question, originally posed by Seth Bruggeman. One year later, let’s revisit this idea and make some plans. Among THATCamp organizers, there is definite interest in continuing DH-related learning and discussion opportunities throughout the calendar year.
For this session, I’ll suggest we:
- Find a date, time, and location for a winter Delaware Valley Digital Humanities meet-up/workshop/hackathon
- Set a tentative agenda for this event, settling upon a speaker or topic of wide interest to the THATCamp Philly community
- Come up with a list of other possible DH-related topics or activities worthy of meeting up to discuss/do
- Take names of people willing to help organize and run these events, deciding who could handle space coordination, catering, speaker coordination, publicity, etc.
If doing something like this in a session might interest you, let us know in a comment.
