As this blog and Lincoln's amazing post from last week readily shows, digital technology has revolutionized how scholarship on religion in America can be both produced and shared. And while we've talked about these transformations on the blog here before, I'm thrilled to announce an opportunity for everyone to learn, share, and collaborate in the ongoing evolution of how knowledge is made.

This year the American Academy of Religion is hosting it's first ever THATCamp on Friday, November 22, 2013!

THATCamp stands for “The Humanities and Technology Camp.” They exist to bring scholars and technologists of every skill level together to learn how to integrate digital technology into their teaching and research. This means the format is not your typical conference proceedings. THATCamps are “unconferences,” which means sessions are built around hands-on workshops and collaborative working groups rather than formal presentations. Participants are even encouraged to propose sessions they would like to attend in advance of the meeting on the THATCamp AAR13 Blog. So far, we've been able to confirm the following workshops:
And more are in the works, including potential workshops on Zotero and teaching with tech.

THATCamp AAR13 is free and open to everyone, but a separate registration is required as space is limited. But do hurry and register because because half the spots are already taken! Also note we'll be running from 9am to 5pm on the Friday before sessions begin, but people can pop in and out if their schedule dictates.

For more information, check out aar2013.thatcamp.org or on follow us all on Twitter  @THATCampAAR.

Hope to see you there!
