The HASTAC 2016 Conference emphasized broader conversations about the past, current, and potential impact of interdisciplinary work in research and education. If the digital humanities are one successful configuration of humanistic and technological research domains, what other configurations are available, or urgently necessary?

HASTAC 2016 investigated the potential for new work, and also encouraged participants to engage ways that collaborative teams might use channels beyond academic publication to impact local communities, national conversations, or worldwide systems.
