Invisible College: THATCamp as Scholarly Society

Scheinfeldt, Tom; McCormick, Monica

How are THATCamp gatherings informing collaborative work between scholars and others interested in the digital humanities? THATCamp (The Humanities and Technology Camp) is an open, low-cost, collaboratively planned gathering for humanists, technologists, and others interested in working together on timely projects. THATCamp is an initiative of the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (CHNM) at George Mason University. Tom Scheinfeldt, Managing Director of CHNM, offers his take on the 40-plus THATCamps that have taken place around the world and discusses the forthcoming Proceedings of THATCamp—featuring output from these meetings—which will be built using a publishing tool developed in the same collaborative spirit.
