Intro to Scalar Workshop

Date: September 18, 2014

On Thursday, Sept. 18, Professor Tara McPherson (USC) will lead an introductory workshop on Scalar, a free, open source authoring and publishing platform that’s designed to make it easy for authors to write long-form, born-digital scholarship online. Scalar enables users to assemble media from multiple sources and juxtapose them with their own writing in a variety of ways, with minimal technical expertise required.
If you would like to learn about this semantic web authoring tool, please sign up at go/dla or send an email to dla@middlebury.edu (put Scalar Workshop in the subject line). Wilson Media Lab has 16 Mac workstations. If you would like to work with a PC, please bring your own laptop.
Tara McPherson, a keynote speaker in the 2014 Clifford Symposium, is Associate Professor of Critical Studies at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts. She is a core faculty member of the IMAP program, USC’s innovative practice based-Ph.D., and an affiliated faculty member in the American Studies and Ethnicity Department. Her research engages the cultural dimensions of digital media, including the intersection of gender, race, affect and place.
