We are very happy to announce that the AHA will be holding THATCamp this year in partnership with the history department at George Washington University. It will be held on January 3rd, 2018 on the GW campus in Foggy Bottom, just a few metro stops from the meeting hotels.

Everything, as they say, has a history, and THATCamp AHAs are no exception. The first THATCamp at an American Historical Association annual meeting took place in January 2012. That makes this the seventh annual event. Over the past seven years, they have been a place for historians to learn about and exchange ideas for how to use technology for research and in the classroom. They have been venues where projects have been conceived and connections made between scholars. Hundreds of scholars have been introduced to digital history in a relaxed, fun, and informal environment.

But what makes THATCamp great is you. So register now, and plan to join us at George Washington University on January 3rd.

You don’t need to be attending the AHA to come to THATCamp. All are welcome.

  1. Howdy, campers! If you are looking for wifi, first try Eduroam if your institution participates in that. If not, have no fear, GWconnect is here. Start by going to this webpage: and then to the tab for Visitors. Follow the [convoluted] process and hopefully it will work. Otherwise, look for a friend with an unlimited data plan and a personal hot spot (kidding?).
