Vanderbilt University’s Center for Teaching, Center for Second Language Studies, Curb Center for Art, Enterprise and Public Policy, and Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities invite applications from graduate students who would like to be 2013-2014 HASTAC Scholars. HASTAC (Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Advanced Collaboratory) is a global network of individuals and institutions that come together to share, collaborate, and learn through online forums, blogs, conferences, social media, and other channels of communication. Four graduate students will be appointed as HASTAC scholars. The appointment includes a $500 award as well as funding to attend the annual HASTAC conference in 2014. These scholars will serve as Vanderbilt’s digital ambassadors to HASTAC.
The HASTAC Scholars program is designed for graduate students who are engaged with innovative projects and research at the intersection of digital media and learning, 21st-century education, the digital humanities, and technology in the arts, humanities and sciences. HASTAC Scholars blog about digital activities on their home campus, host forums, organize events, and discuss new ideas, projects, experiments, and technologies that reconceive teaching, learning, research, writing, and structuring knowledge. For more information, about being a HASTAC scholar, see the HASTAC Scholars website.
