Each year, HASTAC (the Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory) accepts a new cohort of HASTAC Scholars. HASTAC scholars are “graduate and undergraduate students who are engaged with innovative projects and research at the intersection of digital media & learning, the digital humanities, and technology in the arts, humanities and sciences.” The HASTAC scholars maintain an online presence at the HASTAC site throughout the year by blogging, participating in forums, reporting on events, projects, and publications, and collaborating on projects.
