Scalar is an authoring and publishing platform that's designed to make it easy for authors to write long-form scholarship online. The platform particularly facilitates work that engages visual materials. Scalar enables users to assemble media clips and images from multiple sources to juxtapose them with their own writing ina variety of ways, with minimal technical expertise required.
This workshop will be conducted by designer Craig Dietrich.
Virginia Kuhn published a peer-reviewed article in the Scalar platform for the International Journal of Learning and Media. Her article, "Filmic Texts and the Rise of the Fifth Estate," is accessible here.
