Students are invited to apply to the 2021-2023 cohort HASTAC Scholars and join the growing community of graduate and undergraduate students. Every year, a cohort of around 100 scholars join us from over 200 colleges and universities – ranging from small liberal arts colleges to large research universities – and who work at the intersection of technology and the arts, humanities and sciences join in our programs as we rethink pedagogy, learning, research & academia for the digital age. HASTAC

Scholars host online forums, organize collaborative book reviews, write blog posts, share their research and interests on scholar spotlight and Digital Fridays and much more.

This program is designed to be shaped by the HASTAC Scholars each year. The HASTAC Scholars program is directed by Shaun Lin (PhD Student, Geography/Earth and Environmental Science, The Graduate Center, CUNY). The director provides leadership and arranges opportunities for the cohort of Scholars.

What do HASTAC Scholars actually do?

  • Blog about your own work and research projects, questions, ideas
  • Report on activities at your local institution and department
  • Share insights from conferences and performances
  • Network both online and in-person meet-ups or conferences
  • Conduct interviews, book reviews, project reviews—your status as a HASTAC Scholar can give you a sense of standing to reach out to major people in your field!
  • Are you interested in a new tool or pedagogical idea? You could host a small video chat with other Scholars to work through how you can implement it!
  • Other ideas: Create an app, coordinate the development of a small DH project, work with your university library on a digitization project, etc.
  • In short: every student ends up being active in a different way. We are open to how you want to help build this community or develop a supportive community on your campus!

The deadline to APPLY is Friday, October 15th!
