The Humanities and Technology Camp in the Caribbean

(THATCamp Caribe)

3 October 2017
10 am – 4 pm
Alma Jordan Memorial Library
University of the West Indies, St. Augustine, Trinidad

The third THATCamp Caribe will take place at the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine, Trinidad, in partnership with The 36th Annual West Indian Literature Conference. 

THATCamp Trinidad will consist of a full day of shared conversation and learning on 3 October 2017. It is free to register and attend. THATCamp is an “unconference,” where attendees discuss issues related to the intersections of technology, cultural heritage, history, research, art and the humanities in general in an informal environment. Please visit their About page to learn more about this event and how to get involved right away.

The organizers expect to combine discussion with workshops and a Wikipedia collective writing session, but it all depends on attendees indicating their own interests. A THATCamp is usually organized in the month prior to the event, and during the first hour of the day. To sign up, visit the registration page, and suggest topics for workshops on 3 October 3.

THATCamp Trinidad is organized by Kevin Browne (University of the West Indies, St. Augustine), Schuyler Esprit (Dominica State College), Alex Gil (Columbia University), and Kelly Baker Josephs (York College, CUNY).
