THAT Camp (The Humanities And Technology Camp) is an umbrella organization that provides tool kits to humanists and technologists for organizing open, inexpensive, and collaborative meetings at which they can learn and build together. The foci of THATCamps are formed largely by the interests of the attendees who vote on discussion topics in advance, with organizers then creating a schedule and space for conversations.

THATCamp Iowa City will be the first of its kind in Iowa and one of relatively few to be held in the Midwest. Organized by UI HASTAC Scholars Melody Dworak and Katherine Montgomery hope the event will help foster discussion about the UI’s new digital humanities initiative and the many digital projects going on around campus and in the local community.
