Director of the HASTAC Scholars Fiona Barnett just sent UODS an invitation to UODS to nominate UO students, graduate and undergraduate, to join next year’s HASTAC Scholars. The nomination deadline is 8/13/2010. Let’s hear the details from Fiona:
“…I’m writing to introduce this program in particular, as I think it has wonderful overlap with your Digital Scholars blog and consortium. This year we had 120+ scholars from all over the world (but mostly the US) in our second year of the program, and it was a huge success this year. We hosted 6 online forums with 110+ rich comments each, and over 10,000 page views! We also had Scholars participating in our online conference, represent HASTAC at other disciplinary conferences (like the MLA, ASA, etc.) and build a community of folks interested in digital media and learning, digital humanities, 21st century education and the questions and tensions that arise at the intersection of technology and other disciplines.
“We’ve now opened nominations for the 2010-2011 HASTAC Scholars and I really hope we can attract a few University of Oregon students this year. Can you circulate this call for nominations to interested faculty and students (both graduate and undergraduate)? The requirements from faculty are fairly minimal: they support their nominee with a $300 fellowship, and in exchange, the Scholar blogs about the department/institution, shares their own work and the work of their colleagues, participates in the forums, writes reviews and interviews, and helps to build this digital community of scholars.
“More information is included in this call for nominations, and I’m happy to answer other questions you have (email@example.com).
“Take a look at our forums this year, too:
