Anne Stewart: 2010-2011 HASTAC scholar

I’m thrilled to report another UO undergraduate will be serving as a 2010-2011 HASTAC scholar, Anne Stewart (Literature). Anne was nominated by faculty mentor Alisa Freedman, East Asian Languages and Literature, with additional support from Andrew Bonamici (UO Libraries). Here is Anne’s bio from the HASTAC nomination:

Anne Stewart, UO HASTAC scholar

Anne is currently an undergrad in Literature at UO, working on a minor in Japanese with a focus on culture. Her areas of interest for research include the intersection of new and old media, how new media and audience participation in new and old forms are changing what we think of *as* media, and the new folklore of an internet culture where word of mouth moves faster and further than ever before. Manga/anime and other graphic narrative forms, speculative fiction and fanworks in all genres are other prominent areas of interest.

Currently Anne works in the consulting division of UO’s Center for Media and Educational Technologies, helping professors and GTFs to use and understand technology in education. After next year, she’s planning to get a Masters in Library and Information Science, to further study and share these interests with others.

Congratulations, Anne and Alisa!
