PhillyDH@Penn – June 20, 2014
PhillyDH@Penn is back for a 2nd year!
It is a free event on Friday, June 20 — One day of workshops, unconference sessions, lightning talks, and networking.
Join us in the beautiful Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts on the on the 6th floor of UPenn’s Van Pelt-Dietrich Library. Thanks to the UPenn folks for hosting and doing so much work for this event.
To register for free here:
Please spread this announcement far and wide to whoever you think might be interested — especially those who don’t know that they might be interested and informed by the programs for the day!
We encourage you to share this invitation with others at your institutions, your professional colleagues, and students.
On the website, you’ll also find info on:
- The day’s schedule and our early draft of workshop topics.
- More info about the “unconference” format. But in a nutshell: On the day of the event, the attendees suggest & vote for the discussion topics for the day — you determine what groups talk about, what problems get solved, and what you learn and share! Some sessions end up with dozens of people discussing a particular topic while other sessions draw 3 or 4 intensely interested individuals who want to hash out a problem or learn a specific skill.
Hope to see you there, along with your colleagues, your friends, your students, your teachers, …, anyone who works with and appreciates the value of what happens when the humanities and technologies collide.
