HASTAC

I wanted to quickly give some information about HASTAC that I mentioned in class. For those of us just entering the world of Digital Humanities, I think HASTAC provides a good jumping off point. Initially, I felt somewhat overwhelmed with HASTAC. But after attending the 2011 conference this past December, I’ve become aware that it is composed of a lot of people similar to those of us taking the class. People at different levels of technological abilities are seeking out new tools to help them organize and present their work while gaining the benefit of increased collaboration. I would urge everyone to check out the site at hastac.org, especially the scholar blogs (here) produced by graduate students around the country. I’ll also be posting/cross-posting comments about our class on the HASTAC site. (And as a side note, I personally feel that HASTAC could benefit from more input from the foreign languages).
