The HASTAC (Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory) Scholars Program gives undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to develop their Digital Humanities interests and showcase their DH research and projects to a broader audience. Each year, around 100 new Scholars from dozens of disciplines and a variety of colleges and universities are accepted into a new 2-year cohort of the program.
At KU this spring, we celebrate the work done by our institution’s outgoing cohort of HASTAC Scholars and welcome in a new cohort at this inaugural annual event. The outgoing cohort will present the DH research and projects they have worked on during their two-year stint in the program:
- An Sasala (Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies)
- Clarisse Barbier (French, Francophone, and Italian)
- Mariah Crystal (Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies)
- Douglas Rain Charger (Indigenous Studies)
We will also welcome the following KU students who were accepted to the HASTAC Scholars Program for the 2018-2020 cohort:
- Christopher Peace (English)
- Kristan Hanson (Art History)
- Shane Lynch (Indigenous Studies)
Join us on May 9, from 1pm – 2pm, in Watson 455 for a digital humanities research and project showcase. (Please note that we are not in the DH Studio this time.) Light refreshments will be served.
