I've blogged several times about the amazing CHAT festival happening Feb 16-20 at UNC, spearheaded by HASTAC Steering Committee member Joyce Rudinsky and many other colleagues at UNC.   You'll see one of our founding HASTAC Steering Committee members, Mark Olson, on the program.   The Duke Visual Studies Initiative and our ISIS program (the local "mother" of HASTAC) have compiled this list of who at Duke will be at CHAT.  It's thrilling.  Join us!


A number of Duke Visual Studies Initiative and ISIS people are involved in the upcoming CHAT Digital Arts and Humanities Festival. This four day event will take place Feb 16-20 on the UNC campus. Events run all day and into the night . CHAT will include exhibitions, talks, panels, workshops, and other activities. And don't miss the multimedia dance party on Thursday night! Hope to see you there.
