HASTAC Scholars Program at the Fox Center

Fox Center HASTAC Scholars Program 2020 – 2022

The Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry (fchi.emory.edu) will nominate up to two graduate students to the HASTAC Scholars Program (Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory; hastac.org).  This two-year program encourages graduate students working at the intersection of technology and the arts, humanities and sciences to rethink pedagogy, learning, research, and academia for the digital age. Scholars can work on individual projects, or can propose a partnership with an office or organization engaged in research, public scholarship, or public outreach.

What do HASTAC Scholars actually do?

  • Participate online or in person in the annual University Worth Fighting For, a series of workshops that tie student-centered, engaged pedagogical practices to institutional change, race, equality, gender, and social justice
  • Blog on hastac.org about their own work and research projects, questions, ideas; report on research, teaching, publishing, and public-facing activities at their local institution and department; and share insights from conferences, presentations, workshops, and performances
  • Network through the HASTAC community both online and at local meet-ups or conferences
  • Fox Center HASTAC scholars will post at least two blog entries per semester to HASTAC; meet monthly with the Emory HASTAC scholars’ cohort; and submit a brief report at the end of each year.  There will also invited to attend workshops and roundtables hosted the FCHI, and will have the opportunity to present their work at the Fox Center.

HASTAC Scholars will receive:

  • a $1000 Scholar’s stipend per year
  • a $500 travel allowance to attend the annual HASTAC conference
  • additional mentoring from Emory’s Center for Digital Scholarship (digitalscholarship.emory.edu) and related institutions around Emory

For full information on the HASTAC Scholars Program, please see:

Fox Center HASTAC Scholars  work independently and design digital projects that support their research. Successful applicants will already have a clear articulation of technology within their research and teaching, as well as use digital media to present and amplify their work. Additionally, students may elect instead to design or support a digital project within a research or outreach project at Emory, or an external community, foundation, or civic group. Please contact the Fox Center for more information on embedding the scholarship within a specific track.
