Code of Conduct
HASTAC was founded in 2002 as a voluntary, dues-free social network with the motto: “Difference is our operating system.” Unlike much social media, HASTAC thrives because of zero tolerance for any violation of its core principles of respect and equity. Trolls are removed from the website. HASTAC does not share user data and works diligently to maintain the privacy and security of its data. The student-led HASTAC Scholars are dedicated to modeling non-hierarchical, egalitarian values for higher education.

All participants in HASTAC events, including members of the audience, must respect HASTAC’s long-standing community values and rigorous commitment to scholarship, intellectual exchange, and academic discourse that is free of bias or discrimination, especially racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, or other forms of prejudice. Unsolicited physical contact, unwelcome sexual attention, and bullying behavior are likewise unacceptable.

This code is based on HASTAC’s core values statement. In addition, attendees agree to abide by Pratt Institute’s campus safety rules and Community Standards. Pratt Institute shall have the right to eject any disorderly or objectionable person from its facilities or the campus.

HASTAC 2023 conference attendees may report instances of misconduct which occur during the conference to:

  • The HASTAC 2023 Program Committee

  • Pratt’s Department of Public Safety (718.636.3540 or 718.636.3541)

  • Anonymously through EthicsPoint

The B38 bus runs between the Pratt campus and downtown Brooklyn on DeKalb Avenue (westbound) and Lafayette Avenue (eastbound). Both directions stop at the intersection of DeKalb and Flatbush Avenues in Downtown Brooklyn, near the B Q and R lines at the DeKalb Station. The bus ride takes approximately 12–20 minutes, with buses every 17–20 minutes. All NYC buses are wheelchair accessible, and require a MetroCard or OMNY contactless fare payment.

Walking from the conference hotel
From the intersection at DeKalb and Flatbush Avenues in downtown Brooklyn (near the conference hotel), it is an approximately 1 mile (20 minute) walk on DeKalb Avenue to the Pratt campus. The walk is slightly uphill going toward campus. Fort Greene Park and various restaurants and shops are along the way.

In Memoriam

Julie Thompson Klein (1944–January 15, 2023).
A distinguished and prolific scholar of interdisciplinary theory and practice, she was professor emerita at Wayne State University, where she taught for over thirty-six years. An ardent participant and supporter of all things HASTAC, Julie will be remembered for her tenacity on behalf of ideas, principles, and colleagues—especially younger scholars just beginning to get a foothold in the profession and, indeed, anyone who needed a supporting hand, comment, or smile.

Julie was the author or co-author of many books and articles, a partial list of which appears below. A consistent presence at NSF and NEH as well as at conferences in the humanities, social sciences, technology, and the arts, she was such a magnificent and generous supporter of others. Bruce Janz, who organized the 2017 HASTAC Conference at the University of Central Florida, announced her death on Facebook, along with his sincere acknowledgment of her support of him as a scholar, colleague and friend. Dozens of people immediately wrote on HASTAC, Twitter, and other social media of their deep sorrow at her passing and their lasting debt to her.

Her acuity as a thinker was matched by her tenderness. She was an incredible cheerleader for others, everywhere, and a networker par excellence. Julie sometimes spoke of having had polio as a child and how that experience helped make her deeply aware of what it means to live fully against limitations beyond your control. She championed many progressive causes and never failed to speak out against racism, sexism, homophobia, or all the forms of ableism. She was adamant about HASTAC being not just an interdisciplinary space but one profoundly dedicated to equality, access, and scrupulous attention to the impacts of technology on life and learning. She had many insights into disability scholarship and activism and was always attentive to accessibility of every kind.

Dearest Julie: will miss you greatly, stalwart supporter and friend.

Rest in peace,
