Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Advanced Collaboratory (HASTAC, pronounced “haystack”) is an alliance of more than 11,500 humanists, artists, social scientists, scientists and technologists working together to transform the future of learning for the 21st century. The HASTAC Scholars fellowship program is a student-driven community of graduate and undergraduate students who are working at the intersection of technology and the arts, humanities and sciences. Their work centers on rethinking pedagogy, learning, research, and academia for the digital age.
As an outgrowth of their digital project, HASTAC scholars are expected to engage with the broader scholarly community. HASTAC scholars 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.
Applications for 2019-2020 HASTAC Scholars are now open through April 25, 2019. Successful applicants will be contacted by May 15 with award details.
