The Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts and Humanities in the College of Liberal Arts at Auburn University and the Auburn University Libraries are hosting THATCamp Alabama in Auburn September 4 - 5.

THATCamp Alabama is a free "unconference" - a space to share skills and experiences with technology and humanities and brainstorm ways that we can work collaboratively on digital projects within our institutions and beyond.  We are looking for technologists and humanists at all levels and hope to host a diverse group representing researchers, teachers, librarians, curators, archivists, and others.  All participants plan an active role in setting the event agenda by proposing sessions that reflect their interests.

Please visit alabama2015.thatcamp.org for more information.  Registration is free and open to the public.   Space is limited.

(THAT = The Humanities and Technology).
