HASTAC Scholars

SEE MENU ON RIGHT FOR LIST OF HASTAC SCHOLARS BY YEAR.

Graduate students interested in learning more about digital humanities and gaining hands-on experience are encouraged to apply to the 2015-2016 HASTAC Scholars program. 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. Up to seven Vanderbilt University 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 2016 at Arizona State University. These scholars will serve as Vanderbilt’s digital ambassadors to HASTAC.

The HASTAC Scholars program is designed for graduate students who are engaged with or have an interest in 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, see the HASTAC Scholars website.
