HASTAC at Vanderbilt

HASTAC (Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and 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. The HASTAC Scholars program, founded in 2008, 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. 

The Warren Center established the inaugural HASTAC Scholar at Vanderbilt University in 2011-2012.  Over the years, our HASTAC Scholars program at Vanderbilt has grown as we have added institutional sponsors and mentors.  For the upcoming academic year, we have eight graduate student scholars affiliated with various programs on and off campus.  These programs include the Vanderbilt Institute for Digital Learning; the Curb Center for Art, Enterprise, and Public Policy; Humanities Tennessee (a public sector program funded by the NEH); the Jean and Alexander Heard Libraries; the Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities; the American Studies Program; the Center for Second Language Studies; and the Center for Teaching.  Our program not only provides sustained opportunities for graduate students to become proficient in the digital humanities, it also exposes them to various centers and programs outside of their home departments with which they might otherwise not be familiar.
