We are very excited to announce the two locations for THATCamp Milwaukee 2014. That’s right, we are hosting our THATCamp at two distinct Milwaukee locations!
On Friday, May 23rd, we will feature a “Bootcamp” workshop series in the UW-Milwaukee Library’s Digital Humanities Lab. The DH lab is located on the UWM library’s second floor in the East Wing. The UWM library’s address is 2311 E Hartford Ave.
The Friday Bootcamp begins at 8:00am with breakfast, coffee, and introductions and lasts until 4:00pm. You will have an opportunity to attend at least three workshops. Unfortunately, lunch will not be provided on this day. However, there are plenty of dining options within walking distance. Please stay tuned for more information regarding scheduling and the workshops themselves. We do anticipate an exciting slate of workshops dealing with everything from mobile app development to the essentials of web design and search.
Then on Saturday, May 24th, we will all come back together for the THATCamp itself. The Saturday THATCamp—where we break out for and discuss our self-proposed sessions—will take place on the first floor of UWM’s Zilber School of Public Health. Zilber is located in the re-purposed Pabst Brewery complex near downtown. The school’s address is 1240 N 10th Street. Information regarding public transportation options and parking forthcoming. On Saturday, we will be providing you with some delicious FREE lunch (vegetarian friendly), so lets work up a big appetite talking about all things digital!
Note: If you registered for THATCamp, your camper profile should appear on the campers page after approval. That is the only action you need to take in terms of registering and you can expect that you have been admitted to the event. Also, please remember that our THATCamp is only as good as we make it. Now is the time to start proposing some THATCamp sessions on this very website. You can do so by clicking on the “Propose” menu option and following the step-by-step directions. Proposing THATCamp sessions need not be an agonizing process. They can take the form of a simple, well constructed question or be of more detail. Of course, the more thought-provoking and fully-formed the session proposal, the better the session (I can only assume)!
