A bit of good news

Haystack

HASTAC: pronounced like "haystack," but less itchy.

It’s been a sad week here, between the passing of someone very dear to me, the Troy Davis atrocity in Georgia, and, to top it off, the demise of my fish. So I am happy to report that I have a bit of good news to share: I have been named a HASTAC Scholar for 2011-2012. HASTAC–the Humanities, Arts, Sciences, and Technology Advanced Collaboratory–is a consortium of scholars and public intellectuals who are interested in the “possibilities that new technologies offer us for shaping how we learn, teach, communicate, create, and organize our local and global communities.”

In this upcoming year, I hope to jump right in with posts about ethics and digital scholarship, the access divide, some ideas I’ve been tossing around about using digital “exhibitions” in pedagogy, and perhaps even a few updates about the exciting things going on at Emory’s new Digital Scholarship Commons(DiSC). I’m excited to be a part of this collaborative space!
