VCU hosts first THATCamp for RVA
January 31, 2014
The Richmond THATCamp has a theme: New Souths. "We’re interested in exploring the point(s) at which technology intersects with social justice, history and society, activism, and the sharing of hidden voices, especially in the modern American South," said Eric Johnson, head of Innovative Media at VCU Libraries. The lead organizer, Johnson said the theme New Souths was inspired by other events, including a 2011 THAT Camp that focused on technology and social justice. "We expect to draw participants from scholars, community activists, and others who study and/or are engaged in social and political action. Those who are curious about such an approach, or are experienced with it, are especially invited."
- Friday and Saturday, March 14-15
- Space is limited to 75 participants.
- Registration is open and closes March 1.
- Free to participants
- Organizers: VCU Libraries’ Digital Pragmata program and other VCU Libraries faculty; faculty from History, English and Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies; and the Office of Learning Innovation and Student Success.
