HackCulture is a humanities focused hackathon that runs from April 8th to April 23rd. We’ll have a kickoff event, a midpoint check-in, and a judging event.

We hope the longer format event will encourage those new to the hackathon concept to apply and have adequate time to develop new skills. During the event you’ll work in a team to produce something with data the Library will provide to you.

Registration is limited to fifty people. If you’d like to participate, please apply here: https://illinois.edu/sb/sec/5095873 by March 18th at 11:59pm.


Through HackCulture, we’d like to make working with data more accessible to humanists, encourage interdisciplinary collaboration, and help to build a community of peers and mentors across campus.


HackCulture is sponsored by the University Library.
