Here’s my machine-translated Dutch call for shirts:

I did this one myself:

When and Where

We are happy to announce that THATCamp Caribe 2012 will be hosted by the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez Campus. The event will take place November 12-14. The first day, Monday, will be the traditional Bootcamp (i.e., workshops). The actual unconference will take place Tuesday and Wednesday. We chose those dates to make it easier for those who are also participating in the American Studies Association 2012 conference, which is taking place in San Juan from the 15th to the 18th. We will arrange buses for participants of both conferences to travel from San Juan to Mayagüez and back. We are also brainstorming with the ASA ways we can cooperate to encourage and facilitate dual-participation.

In the meantime, mark your calendars. Registration for THATCamp will open on April the 17th!

Welcome to the main site for THATCamp Caribe 2012. Our goal is to bring together digital humanists from in and outside the Caribbean together with Caribbean scholars, librarians, artists, technologists and tinkerers to imagine the future of digital humanities in the larger Caribbean region. The venue and the date for the event are still undecided. Most likely, the event will take place in November of 2012. Possible locales include Santo Domingo, Trinidad & Tobago or Curaçao. Please visit this website for updates or subscribe to our RSS feed.

A THATCamp is an unconference. There are no papers, no pre-conceived panels, no keynote speaker. To read more about the THATCamp model, visit our FAQ page. You can also read more about other THATCamps at If you would like to help organize or contribute to THATCampCaribe please contact >Alex Gil.
