Rethink, Invent, Disrupt: Seattle’s Rogue Scholar, An Introduction
October 18, 2011

Rogue Scholar (RS) is a Seattle nonprofit research group dedicated to building
community through artistic, social, and educational collaboration. For this
program, the founders—digital humanist Michael Gaston, historian Annie
Hayward, and anthropologist Christopher Santo Domingo Chan—gave an
overview of the group’s current and past projects including Totem, a digital
humanities curation project along Seattle’s planned First Hill streetcar route; the
documentary Visions of Yesler, which looks at the history and future of Yesler
Terrace; RS’s new literary journal, Et al; the Seattle Small Press Festival; and its
monthly Rogue Salon, where intellectuals and creatives can dialogue over art,
snacks, and drinks. With less of a commitment than a book club and way more
beer, in its few short years, RS has found new ways to both creatively and
financially engage in a variety of literary, visual, and performing arts projects
throughout the Pacific Northwest.
