When? Where?THATCamp Bay Area 2011 is happening Sat & Sun 22-23 October at Google in Mountain View, CA.
I am a 4th-year, ABD graduate student working on French colonial history, specifically the French Caribbean at the turn of the century. I moved to the Bay Area with my wife 3 years ago, and last December we had our first child: a happy and healthy baby girl. I've been a longtime techno-phile, and I enjoy working on computers (both software and hardware) in my free time. In another life, I had planned to be a computer programmer, but I settled on history instead.
I was recently appointed the Digital Humanities Coordinator for the History Department at the University of California, Berkeley. I've been working to raise technological literacy among graduate students and faculty, and have been overseeing a project to create a networking and resource website for graduate students in the History Department.
