Congratulations to Alisa and Will – we look forward to working with you and seeing your development in the Digital Humanities this year!
The HASTAC program is a program of the Fordham Digital Humanities Working Group. Funding for the 2013-2014 year was provided through the generous support of the Dean of Fordham College at Rose Hill. For further information about the HASTAC program, see the HASTAC At Fordham page.
