- Hastac 2013: The Storm of Progress Team

2013 marks the 10th anniversary of HASTAC’s founding. In that spirit HASTAC 2013 is showcasing work that is either reflective or prescient, that evaluates our digital histories and seeks to construct our digital future(s). We invited contributors to take this opportunity to look back, theorize and archive. We invited them to engage in the creative, if impossible, attempt to glimpse the digital future. We challenged them to shape it. And researchers from across Canada, the United States and Europe and from as far away as Australia are coming to Toronto to share how they and their teams, their research labs,
their classrooms and their students are building the technologies and subjects of the future right now or imagining new horizons of possibility for the ways in which we will make, teach, learn and find community in the coming decade(s).

HASTAC 2013 brings together 5 keynote speakers, 150 refereed papers, panels and demos, a maker space, curated digital performances and over 250 attendees including established and emerging scholars, artists and authors, tech entrepreneurs and teachers,  to explore alternative modes of creating, innovating, and critiquing that better address the interconnected, diverse, interactive global nature of knowledge today, both in the academy and beyond. Our scheduled sessions will deepen our understanding of the role of digital technologies and media and the changes in behaviour and ways of learning and working currently underway.

Join us!  We look forward to welcoming you to HASTAC 2013 and to Toronto.
