Three undergraduate students — Katie Hobbs, Rebecca Rasmussen, and Cole Heyn — have been accepted as HASTAC Scholars for the 2013-2014 academic year, with Associate Professor Chuck Rybak of Humanistic Studies serving as adviser. (HASTAC stands for Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory. It’s a consortium of nearly 10,000 individuals and institutions nationwide.) The UW-Green Bay students will be using their time as HASTAC Scholars to collaborate in this national network of scholars and to explore their interests in the Digital Humanities. Very few undergraduates participate in the HASTAC program, Rybak says, so it a special opportunity for the students. Read background on HASTAC. See the UW-Green Bay webpage that provides access to our students’ posts so far.
