A THATCamp is being planned for May 17, 2013, in New Orleans. It will take place in the Louisiana Humanities Center Building, 938 Lafayette Street, in downtown New Orleans. Digital Humanities folk in New Orleans hope that participants from throughout the Gulf Coast will help with planning.
THATCamp New Orleans’ Friday, May 17, date coincides with the Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo Festival. This is a smaller-scale, free festival held in the center of the city May 17-19 along Bayou St. John; it’s particularly popular among residents and visitors who have been priced out of Jazz Fest.
Come for THATCamp NOLA 2013; stay for the festival.
