The theme of our event will be *Digital Pedagogies*, with a focus on
post-secondary instruction methods. We welcome students, teachers,
librarians, and other professionals interested in this topic.

THATCamp stands for “The Humanities and Technology Camp.” It is an
unconference: an open, inexpensive meeting where humanists and
technologists of all skill levels learn and build together in sessions
proposed on the spot.

Our keynote , which is free and
open to the public, will be by  Professor Bonnie Stewart (University of
Windsor): “Digital Pedagogy in an Age of Algorithms: What do we DO about
Data?.” 8 April, 3:45-5:00pm in the Desmond Hall (Coady West Building Rm
120, St Francis Xavier University).

THATCamp is:

   * Collaborative: there are no spectators at a THATCamp. Everyone
     participates, including in the task of setting an agenda or program.
   * Informal: there are no lengthy proposals, papers, presentations, or
     product demos. The emphasis is on productive, collegial work or
     free-form discussion.
   * Spontaneous and timely, with the agenda / schedule / program being
     mostly or entirely created by all the participants during the first
     session of the first day, rather than weeks or months beforehand by
     a program committee.
   * Productive: participants are encouraged to use session time to
     create, build, write, hack, and solve problems.

Looking forward to seeing you in Antigonish for a productive and
exciting day!

Dear Humanist list members,

I write with word of two courses, each about a week long, coming up in May
and June 2019, for learning to build, work with, navigate, and process TEI:
the Digital Mitford Coding School from 20-24 May and the XPath class at the
DHSI from 10-14 June.  I hope you'll share this announcement with anyone
you know who might benefit.

The Digital Mitford Coding School is an unusual learning opportunity
because it is part of an annual face-to-face summit for the Digital
Mitford team to brush up on project methods and make major decisions (see
http://digitalmitford.org. Participants thus have a window into ongoing 
project operations, and each year we are learning something new to share. 
We welcome new text encoders and past participants alike. For more 
nformation and how to apply, please see http://bit.ly/DigMitCoding2018.

This year the Mitford Coding School is excited to feature a special guest
instructor, Prof. Jeffrey C. Witt, developer of the Scholastic Commentaries
and Texts Archive (https://scta.info/) who will teach us how to work with
the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) (https://iiif.io/) to
connect our TEI manuscript encoding with archival images in the semantic
web of linked data. We are planning some significant site upgrades to
support IIIF ahead of the Coding School to help use our project data as a
teaching model.

The second class is an intensive hands-on experience with XPath for
Processing XML and Managing Projects coming up at the DHSI that I'm
planning to co-teach with David Birnbaum in week 2 (10-14 June) in
Victoria. Read about the DHSI course at
and follow the link to the DHSI registration page. There are tuition
scholarships available for this course, but you need to apply for them,
which you can do at http://www.dhsi.org/scholarships.php.

We look forward to welcoming you to either or both courses, and please help
us spread the word!
