In a collaboration between the Digital Humanities and Social Sciences program at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), the Andrew W. Mellon Fellows in the Digital Humanities at the University of Rochester, and the Memorial Art Gallery (MAG), we invite you to join us for THATCamp Rochester 2018 on Friday, March 23. THATCamp is intended to be informal, non-hierarchical, collaborative, participatory, interdisciplinary, spontaneous, productive, and accessible. To quote from the previous incarnation of RIT’s 2016 THATCamp: “It is an unconference: an open, inexpensive meeting where humanists and technologists of all skill learn and build together in sessions proposed on the spot.”
In addition to THATCamp on Friday, we will be hosting Michael Phelps who is currently the Director of EMEL (the Early Manuscript Electronic Library) and leader of the palimpsest project at Saint Catherine’s Monastery, Sinai for a keynote address on Thursday, March 22 at the University of Rochester. He will explore the intersections of multi-spectral imaging technology and museums.
