Blogs

HASTAC’s mission is shaped by the active participation and interests of our members. Whether authoring one of your own blog entries, commenting on someone else’s, or just lurking and learning, blogs are one of the primary ways to interact with, strengthen, and fully engage the HASTAC network. Below you will find recent blog entries, as well as some curated entries selected by HASTAC staff. You can also easily track the latest comments and see what blog posts are generating the most discussion. Via the buttons in the sidebar, you will also find HASTAC’s own Cathy Davidson’s “Cat in the Stack” blog, as well as “Where are the Now” the official blog of the Digital Media and Learning Competition winners.

I’m new to this blogging thing. Why do you want to hear from me?
Diversity is the lifeblood of HASTAC. The HASTAC membership comprises people from all walks of life and backgrounds with disparate areas of interest and specialization--from junior and senior scholars in the academy, to public intellectuals and citizen journalists in the community, to students and educators, to gamers and IT specialists, to artists. Everyone brings their own different knowledge and perspectives to an issue or discussion. From these differences can come synergy and innovation. This “collaboration by difference” is HASTAC’s guiding method, but it requires your unique voice. Join the conversation.


What should I write about?
A blog can be a quickly jotted sentence or a long, carefully constructed argument or anything in between. Share some interesting news that might have crossed your inbox; discuss what you are currently working on; highlight recent developments in your field; provide or solicit feedback or give advice to others; or simply share your opinion on issues big and small.


What are those icons under the member pictures?
Member badges are a quick, visual tool that give information about members and their relationship to the larger HASTAC community. The golden haystack icon indicates a member of the HASTAC staff; the DML icon indicates a Digital Media and Learning Competition winner; the orange and grey colored bars icon indicates how active the user is--the more orange bars you have the more content you have posted; the graduation cap icon indicates a HASTAC Scholar.
