  • Takeaways from the Public Sphere discussion


    Hi Everyone,

    I have created a Google doc with (my) takeaways from the Digital Culture Public Sphere session. I know that Pia Waugh (Convener of the Public Sphere) wants to use and incorporate this into her documentation as soon as possible, so it would be great if you could make any additions/changes in the next day or so.

    I hope I’ve been able to capture and represent most of the major points (thanks to Yvonne for her excellent note taking), although obviously add anything I didn’t get. It would also be ideal if anyone had further case studies or precedent to add from here.



  • The stayers…


    Those of us who were still there after the end of the final session posed for a picture:

    Thanks, people. Until next time…

  • Time to get the ideas flowing!


    With just over a week to go (eeek!), it’s time for THATCampers old and new to start putting forward some ideas for sessions.

    THATCamp is an unconference, remember? That means the schedule, the program and the content is all up to you. What do you want to talk about? What problems are you facing in your research? What new technologies have you been playing with? If you need some more ideas go to THATCamp central.

    Registered campers have accounts on this blog, so you can log on and start posting your ideas straight away.

  • Thanks to our sponsors


    THATCamp Canberra is only possible due to the generosity of our sponsors. Like last year, THATCamp Canberra 2011 is being supported by the Digital Design + Media Arts Research Cluster at the University of Canberra.

    But we’re also pleased and proud to announce that THATCamp Canberra 2011 is being sponsored by the National Museum of Australia and the National Library of Australia. It’s great to see our national cultural institutions getting involved in the digital humanities.
