Our Digital Platforms for Multimedia Scholarship will be both an in-person event at the Graduate Center (CUNY) and an online livestreamed event. The livestream will start here a few minutes before the event: http://bit.ly/FuturesED-live.
Scalar is a pioneering platform that offers scholars the tools to author media-rich online publications. These publications can contain streaming video, audio, interactive maps, graphs, tags, etc., and are already being used for dissertations and being published by university presses. Alexei Taylor, a digital interface designer, has worked with the platform for five years with students, faculty, presses, archives, and museums to explore how online tools can shape the present and pave the way for the future of academic publishing.
Join us for a live demo and discussion with Alexei Taylor and Diana Taylor (NYU), moderated by Jessie Daniels (The Graduate Center).
Refreshments will be provided. RSVP is encouraged, but not required.
This event is co-sponsored by Mina Rees Library, CUNY Graduate Center, The Futures Initiative and JustPublics@365.
