Visualizing the Growth of HASTAC and HASTAC Scholars

Visualizing the Growth of HASTAC and HASTAC Scholars

HASTAC has increased from a few hundred members in 2002 to a thriving online community that now includes more than 13,000 humanists, artists, social scientists, scientists, and technologists working together to transform the future of learning.

The HASTAC Scholars fellowship program has also expanded with 55 students in the program in 2008-2009 to 242 students in 2013-2014.

As The Futures Initiative and HASTAC@CUNY join the ongoing community discussions within HASTAC, we designed a visualization of this growth to share the successes of HASTAC with others.
