History Camp 2016
Spend Saturday with some of the most interesting people in History. History Camp Boston 2016 is an unparalleled opportunity to connect with other history enthusiasts throughout New England and beyond who are passionate and engaged with history. History Camp started in 2014 in Cambridge. The second History Camp was March 2015 at the Harriet Tubman House in Boston and we'll return there for History Camp Boston 2016. The Harriet Tubman House is 5minutes from the Mass Ave T stop and 5 - 10 minutes from covered parking. If you love history, don't miss History Camp. Register now to secure your spot. You'll be right at home. Interested in presenting? Add your topic, session description, name, and links (such as to social media, a personal site or blog, or your institution) to the Boston History Camp wiki. (Note that you must use the Chrome browser to use the wiki, but as you'll see, it's worth it. Very simple to use. Support for other browsers is coming.) Interested in helping organize or get the word out? The same: Read those pages on theBoston History Camp wiki. (Requires the Chrome browser.) If you'd rather e-mail this information, feel free, and we'll add it. More on History Camp Not familiar with History Camp. Start here: This is History Camp. Learn more at HistoryCamp.org. Here's what some of the people who attended earlier History Camps had to say: Excellent sessions, interesting people. Great sessions and panels. I hoped it would be good . . . and it was great. It was a lot of fun. Impressed by the level of interest, taking up all available places in advance. I wasn't sure what to expect but it was great to be surrounded by others who enjoy history. It was really fun! I liked the casual atmosphere a lot, and the size was just right--plenty of cool people to talk to, but not so many that it was overwhelming. I hope it happens again next year. It had the potential of being really disorganized and/or chaotic, but instead it felt like a great communal effort. The presentations were interesting, and felt intimate. Everyone felt like a colleague. There were a lot of different programs on a number of different topics. I liked that it was informal. The topics were great and varied enough that I wouldn't have gotten the breadth of knowledge at any other single event. The breadth and quality of the presentations, and the enthusiasm of the attendees, left a good impression. A note about helping to cover the costs of History Camp History Camp is run by volunteers who believe that fostering an interest in history and supporting historic places and institutions are vitally important. Our goal is just to cover costs; no one is making any money. There are registration and donation options at every level, including for students and volunteers. Money should not keep anyone from attending. Everyone is welcome. We're just hoping those who can will chip in to contribute to cover the costs. What to wear or bring A print out of your registration (or the Eventbrite attendee app on your smartphone) Enthusiasm! Reenactor? Come as you are! Optional Your laptop or tablet--We'll have wi-fi access Something to use to take notes Your preferred badge holder--We've purchased pin-type badge holders. If you'd prefer one with a clip, bring one you received at a previous conference and we'll give you the paper insert with your History Camp information. Getting to History Camp 2016 Registration will open at 8 a.m. and we'll start the 'round room introductions at 9 a.m. We'll wrap up the day with another session that brings us all back together and then pack up so that we're out of the building by 6 p.m. History Camp 2016 is at the Harriet Tubman House at 566 Columbus in Boston at the corner of Massachusetts and Columbus Avenues,a 5 minute walk from the Mass. Avenue T stop on the Orange Line and a 5 - 10 minute walk from two covered parking lots. Via mass transit:Take the T to the Mass Ave. stop on the Orange Line and then walk about a block. (See the map below andthe MBTA's interactive system map.) By car:Parking in the neighborhood is tight. For History Camp 2015 we had scouted out theGainsborough Garage before the event, only to find out that morning that is was full. Thankfully, there was a small garage that was closer that had space. We'll work with the Gainsborough to get a better idea of capacity and schedules for History Camp 2016. In addition, when we get closer to the event, we'll add information on the other nearby garage. From the Gainsborough Garage: When leaving the garage, turn right and follow a flight of stairs that takes you to a walkway over the railroad tracks. It's roughly two long blocks. (See the map below.) The garage is open 24 hours a day and is well-lighted and staffed. It's also expensive for those of us who don't regularly park in Boston(view their rates). One of the alternatives is to park at an outlying station (such as Alewife, where parking is $7 for the day) and take the T in. Using Alewife as an example and calculating in the roundtrip fare on the T, you would save roughly $10 over parking at the Gainsborough Garage and walking. (View the MBTA's interactive system map.)
