Digital history happenings at #AHA2014

This isn’t a proposal (I will have one nearer the date), but I just wanted to give THATCamp participants a heads up about some of the other digital activities at the AHA annual meeting.

If you’re coming to THATCamp and are interested in digital history (which seems likely), you will also want to check out all of the other exciting events, activities and panels related to digital engagement that are happening at the meeting. I’ve written an article that describes a few of the highlights and also has a list of most of the sessions that have a digital focus. There are panels on all manner of digital history including teaching with digital tools and methods, using digital materials as primary sources, the future of historical research in a digital age, and many more.

For the first time this year, we’re hosting a reception for history bloggers and tweeters, so if you’ve ever blogged about history, sent a tweet, or even if you’re curious and interested in talking to people about it over a drink, please come along to the Governor’s Room at the Omni Shoreham on Thursday January 2nd from 5:30-7:00PM.

We’ve also recently had a few cancellations for the Getting Started in Digital History workshop. If you’re new to digital history, and want to participate in a more structured introduction to the tools, techniques and methodologies then reserve your spot now.

So if you haven’t already, consider registering for the annual meeting and taking part in all of the exciting things we have planned.
