Humanities, Arts, Science, Technology Advanced Collaboratory

HASTAC was formed in 2002 by a group of scholars in the United States as a virtual organization that would serve to make connections among humanists, technologists, and university programs for the purposes of developing collaborations on digital humanities projects. Cathy Davidson and David Theo Goldberg were key visionaries in the creation of HASTAC who organized the efforts of other scholars to establish the mission and scope of the virtual organization. As one of these founding members, Anne Balsamo has organized and participated in several HASTAC conference events and activities.
