Open Meeting Monday, November 8, 1-2pm at the Franklin Humanities Institute in the Smith Warehouse, Bay 4, Room C105 "The Garage"
Come join the conversation about the new Masters in Knowledge and Networks being proposed by HASTAC, FHI and the Graduate School. ISIS will be a key collaborator in this new effort.
A message from Cathy Davidson, HASTAC Co-Director:
We are absolutely delighted by the warm and enthusiastic response to our first invitation (please see below) to be part of an exciting new experiment in reshaping education for the future, a proposed "re-professional" Masters degree in Knowledge and Networks. We will be hosting a general "Town Hall" informational and follow-up meeting from 1:00-2:00 pm on November 8th, in the "Garage" (Room C015) in Bay 4 of the Smith Warehouse at 114 Buchanan Street to gather together anyone who is interested or has questions or feedback to share. Please feel free to share this email with anyone you think would be interested in attending.
We will be joined by Dean David Bell from the Graduate School, who first asked me and the HASTAC team to dream up this visionary degree, as well as Dean of Humanities Srinivas Aravamudan and Ian Baucom, Director of the Franklin Humanities Institute.
In the meantime, the Comment Press posting of the entire degree with all appendices continues to accept your comments and feedback at: http://hastacblogs.org/duke/makn
Thank you again for all your compliments and offers to be part of this. It's thrilling.
Cathy on behalf of the HASTAC team
