What would it look like to write a research paper that utilizes the rich interactivity we experience everyday on the World Wide Web? To build a digital project for a class assignment where readers can more fully explore your evidence and argument through digital media, maps and visualizations?

To find out, join us this semester for a series of student workshops at the Ahmanson Lab around emerging tools and practices in digital scholarship.

At our first workshop of the semester, on Wednesday, January 31, we will work with Scalar, an open-source, multimedia authoring platform developed at USC. The session will introduce the platform, showcase the various ways it has been used to create online student research projects, scholarly publications, exhibits, and games, and lead students through a hands-on workshop.

An example of one of Scalar's many applications can be found here: http://scalar.usc.edu/anvc/chaosandcontrol/colophon?path=index

Please bring an Internet-ready laptop to the workshop. Pizza will be provided for workshop attendees.

Wednesday, January 31 | 4:00 to 5:30 p.m.
