We have a great lineup of workshops, presentations, and lightning talks all aimed at generating discussion around the intersection of technology, pedagogy, and scholarship. Our Keynote Speaker, Trevor Muñoz, will deliver his remarks at 1:00 on Wednesday in Foster Auditorium.

LASTS 2013 Graduate Student Happy Hour

We are excited to announce the first ever LASTS Graduate Student Happy Hour from 5:00 until 6:30 on Thursday August 15th at Whiskers in the Nittany Lion Inn. Appetizers will be provided and students will be responsible for their own drinks.

This post-conference gathering will be hosted by Chris Long, Associate Dean for Undergraduate and Graduate Education in the College of the Liberal Arts, and Mike Furlough, Associate Dean for Research and Scholarly Communications at Penn State University Libraries.

We hope to see all of our LASTS’ graduate students there for an opportunity to network with faculty and other students engaged in digital scholarship.
