NYCDH Inaugural Gathering 2013

Event Description:

We are proud to announce our inaugural gathering of the NYC-DH group! The gathering takes place September 28, at The Humanities Initiative at NYU. We welcome the New York City Digital Humanities for a day full of activities in grand DH fashion. We have designed a program that gives you a taste of the many different DH gathering genres: a workshop, a working session, lightning talks, unconference sessions and short talks. We hope that the event will attract emergent and established scholars and technologists from libraries, faculties and museums in the city. Registration for the event is free.

(An unconference is a sort of academic meeting that deemphasizes formal presentations and hierarchies. The format is much loved by the digital humanities community, as exemplified by the THATCamp movement. You can learn more about the format here).
