HASTAC Scholars Call

  • Required local IUB HASTAC scholar activities

    Locally, IU HASTAC scholars are required to do the following:

    • Attend monthly IUB HASTAC scholars’ meetings
    • Meet with an IDAH-affiliated faculty advisor once a semester
    • Attend periodic IDAH events (seminars, workshops)
    • Give a lightning talk on their project at the IDAH spring symposium
  • Required national HASTAC scholar activities

    As an outgrowth of their digital project, HASTAC scholars are expected to engage with the broader scholarly community. A HASTAC scholar typically:

    • Blog on the HASTAC site, introducing themselves and their projects
    • Report on at least ONE local relevant event - any conference, talk, art project, symposium, experiment or collaboration - during the year
    • Introduce at least one other technology project to the greater HASTAC community (e.g. a new technology, a new coding language, a new use of technology in the non-profit sector, a new game for learning, an interesting new book, etc.)
    • Contribute to HASTAC Scholar Discussion Forums, either by hosting or commenting.
    • Build community and conversation by commenting, tweeting, covering conferences, and helping organize local meet-ups.
    • Share relevant job info, fellowship opportunities, conference CFPs, and publishing opportunities.

    Since 2002, HASTAC has served as a community of connection where members share news, tools, research, insights, and projects to promote engaged learning for a global society. Issues of access and equality are as important to HASTAC’s mission as the latest technological innovations; creative contribution is as important as critical thinking. Scholars make professional and intellectual connections beyond their institutions and disciplines by collaborating, blogging, and sharing research and opportunities on HASTAC.org. Student-led forums have engaged hundreds of thousands of unique visitors to discuss topics including Academic Publishing in the Digital Age, Visualization and Mapping, and Democratizing Knowledge. More than 800 graduate and undergraduate HASTAC Scholars have been sponsored by 145 colleges and universities from several countries.
