PITTSBURGH—Chatham University will host The Humanities and Technology Camp (THATCamp) Pittsburgh on October 5-6 . This will be the first time the event has been held in the Pittsburgh region. Geared toward people with all levels of technological knowledge, the event is an open, affordable meeting where humanists and technologists of all skill levels learn and build together in sessions proposed on the spot.
THATCamp Pittsburgh will include workshops on topics such as Omeka, WordPress, Network Analysis, Oxygen HML, social media, and digital preservation, among others. The conference keynote will be Dr. Patrick Juola, associate professor of computer science at Duquesne University, who has made national and international news recently as one of two analysts that helped to reveal J.K. Rowling’s authorship of Galbraith’s The Cuckoo’s Calling.
