As a follow-up to my recent post introducing the HASTAC Scholars Program and some of our initial Scholars, I write to offer another brief introduction to several more of the fascinating students from whom you will be hearing in the year ahead. They include:
Lindsey Andrews, a graduate student in English from Duke University, who is a researcher, and the lead blogger, on the VirtualPeace project (which was one of the 2007-08 winners of the HASTAC/MacArthur Foundation Digital Media and Learning Competition).
Daniel Chamberlain, a graduate student in the School of Cinematic Arts at the University of Southern California whose interests include the intersections of emergent media technologies and new urban spaces, media interfaces and network theory.
Jovanna Foreman, a junior in Computer Information Systems at North Carolina Central University, who is interested in systems library science.
Joey Harding, an undergraduate in Math and English at UT-Austin who is the founder of Alchemic Studio, a game design team, and is interested in entrepreneurship.
Raeshawn R. McGuffie, a graduate student in the School of Library & Information Sciences at North Carolina Central University who is interested in digitizing special collections.
Maggie Tate, a graduate student in Sociology at the University of Texas at Austin with an interest in new media art and internet spaces as alternative exhibition sites.
