In just over a month, THATCamp Jersey Shore arrives. We are still eager to get your application. We will have BootCamp sessions for relative newcomers to digital humanities, allowing for hands on immersion in programs and processes that are valuable for getting up to speed. If you are coming from a bit of a distance, I am pleased to remind you that through the generosity of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Kress Foundation, and the Council on Information and Library Resources, we have a small number of fellowships offering $500 to participants in BootCamp sessions. Too learn more about BootCamp fellowships and how to apply you can go to the central THATCamp homepage here. If you wish to be considered for one of these fellowships, you must fill in the THATCamp Jersey Shore application (available here) and the separate fellowship application (available here) by March 15. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by!
The fellowships are designed to help defray travel and accommodation costs, so are not designed for “locals.” Locals are, however, very welcome to attend all BootCamp sessions. We expect to have an assortment of 5-7 BootCamp sessions to choose from. If you are applying (or have already applied) and think that you could offer an excellent prospective BOOTCamp session, please let us know. We would be pleased to expand our offerings.
