Full Bio: 

Kaysi Holman is the Program Coordinator for HASTAC and the PhD Lab in Digital Knowledge in the John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute at Duke University. As such, she is responsible for most communications on behalf of HASTAC: compiling the monthly newsletters, managing HASTAC's social media presence, curating content on HASTAC into useful collections and groups, and reviewing all content on HASTAC. She also coordinates the PhD Lab in Digital Knowledge at Duke, which provides an interdisciplinary space for collaboration on digital humanities projects. Each year, the PhD Lab supports the scholarship of more than 35 masters and doctoral students from Duke University, University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University. As part of her work coordinating HASTAC and the PhD Lab, Kaysi produces numerous livestreamed and local workshops for digital tools or pedagogical methods, manages finances and budgets, creates print and online reports, and supports scholars professional development. 

Since joining the HASTAC team in 2012, Kaysi has worked on a breadth of challenging projects, including: serving as one of the project leads on the development of the new HASTAC website; consulting with the Conference Planning Committees for HASTAC 2014, 2015 and 2016; and producing the “History and Future of (Mostly) Higher Education” #FutureEd MOOC with Professor Cathy Davidson. For the #FutureEd project, Kaysi was responsible for do-it-yourself filming and editing; building the course platform, quizzes, and forums on Coursera; managing intellectual property permissions; creating wikis and a platform for engagement on HASTAC for more than 80 institutional collaborators; coordinating the 13 undergraduate and graduate students serving as Community TAs for the 18,000+ Coursera class community; and producing the final publication of the students' articles published in the Chronicle for Higher Education. As this experience indicates, Kaysi enjoys learning new things--technologies, theoretical approaches, tools and methodologies.

Kaysi holds a J.D. from Arizona State University School of Law and a B.S. in Cognitive Studies from Vanderbilt University. Since graduating, she has worked with nonprofits and educational organizations dedicated to equity and social justice, both within higher education and achieved through access to higher education.
