Creating Digital Online Publications with Scalar Online
Presenter: Denise Challenger
Gain introductory user knowledge on digitally documenting, archiving, and visualizing community-facing projects through the open-source Scalar publishing platform. Join PhD candidates Sarah York-Bertram and Denise Challenger as they share their process of building and adapting Scalar for their respective Graduate Assistant projects.
York-Bertram works with the Conjugal Slavery in War partnership, developing a Scalar project as a companion to the “Ododo Wa: Stories of Girls in War” traveling exhibit to support community dialogues about survivor-centred justice and reparations. Denise Challenger’s “Playin’ Mas, Play and Mas: A Pedagogical Journey of Children in Caribana” project features the personal photos of Kenneth Shah and emerges from an experiential learning project supported by the Office of Vice Provost Academic York University, the Harriet Tubman Institute for Research on Africa and its Diasporas, and York University Libraries. Both Scalar projects engage with the topics and experiences of children and youth. This workshop shares user functions available in Scalar such as media annotation and narrative organization, both of which support engaging civic commitment and community collaboration. This workshop supports participants through accessing their own Scalar project and builds on the Knight Lab workshop (participants do not have to attend the Knight Lab workshop to attend the Scalar workshop).
This workshop is presented as part of Open Access Week, with the support of the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
