• Bootcamp

    One strand of sessions at THATCamp Jersey Shore will be designated BootCamps, offering focused, hands-on experience with digital humanities tools or concepts. BootCamp sessions will be open to all participants at THATCamp Jersey Shore. For those participants who wish to make BootCamp their primary focus at THATCamp, there are a limited number of fellowships available, offered through the generosity of the Mellon Foundation, the Kress Foundation, and the Council on Library and Information Research, to help defray travel costs. Applications for the fellowships must be made separately from the application to participate at THATCamp at the following link.

    There will be at least one BootCamp session and one “Regular” session of THATCamp for each of the six periods of the conference. The BootCamp offerings will be as follows:
