Workshop presentation: Scalar

Workshop: An Overview of Multimodal Publishing (Tara McPherson)
Thursday, November 15, 12:30 PM
19 University Place, room 222

This brown-bag workshop will address practical and theoretical questions regarding approaches to multimodal scholarly publishing and focus in particular on Scalar. For DCI participants and others working in digital publishing, this promises to be a great opportunity to learn about combining textual, visual, and audio media in order to complicate and deepen the kind of questions their projects examine. As the editorial statement for the Vectors journal contends, multimodal projects exhibit the unique ability “to represent the multiple collaborations and conflicts that take place in interactive and computational media, highlighting not only the virtual dialogue between creator and producer, but also the tenuous alliance of human and machine intelligence.”
