Announcements and instructions from the organizers about THATCamp logistics.

THATCamp Virginia 2015


As the big weekend approaches, we’ve added some additional resources to our page.

First, we have decided on four workshops that we will be offering to kick off THATCamp on Friday April 10, and we’d love to hear from you! Check out the descriptions of what we’ll be offering, and then let us know which one you’d like to attend. Please RSVP as soon as you can, so that the facilitators who have volunteered know how to plan.

Additionally, because we don’t think the fun should end after the final session of the day, we’ve added a Google Map with tons of restaurants, bars, shopping, and cultural opportunities. Check out our Visiting Blacksburg page and explore the map to learn more about what Blacksburg has to offer, including the Islamic Worlds Festival at our newly renovated arts center.


Welcome to THATCamp Virginia 2015! This year’s event is proudly hosted by Virginia Tech, located in Blacksburg, on April 10–11, 2015. We are excited to welcome everyone and anyone interested in the digital humanities to join us for open conversations, a bit of brainstorming, and deep discussions about technology and the humanities in THATCamp’s “traditional” unconference style!

If you have registered for the camp, don’t forget to propose a session and read through the other campers’ proposals (found below) before you come to Blacksburg.

The pages in the navigation menu contain more information about the schedule, lodging, program, and other logistics, but if you have any questions about these items, please don’t hesitate to email us.

The best way to connect with us and other campers is to follow us on Twitter and tweet with our hashtag: #THATCampVA.

We look forward to seeing you in Blacksburg for THATCamp Virginia 2015!
