Sustaining Digital Humanities Training Through THATCamp


The THATCamp program has offered low-cost digital methods training to hundreds of humanities scholars. Largely as a result of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation’s 2010-2012 investment of $260,000, THATCamp has succeeded at providing digital humanities training at scale to the scholarly community, serving more than 4000 participants since its inception in 2008. We are asking for two further and final years of funding to ensure that THATCamp survives and flourishes for many years to come. With Mellon’s help, we will support at least thirty more THATCamps, establish a volunteer THATCamp Coordinating Council to assume the responsibilities of the THATCamp Coordinator, review and expand the documentation available for THATCamp organizers and participants, add community strengthening social networking features to the THATCamp website, and hold an event called THATCamp Leadership for the purpose of obtaining support for the THATCamp model from university administrators and scholarly association heads.
