event: Networked Humanities: Art History in the Web

Since the earliest times, new technologies have contributed to profound scientific advances and have transformed the ways we can do research.

THATCamp is a user-generated “unconference” on digital humanities developed by the Center for History and New Media (CHNM) at George Mason University.
