Have a large research project, but not sure how to organize it? Want to structure your writing around multiple topics and themes? In this workshop, we will explore Scalar, a digital publishing platform, that can structure multiple paths through your argument and help you visualize connections between topics, themes, objects, and spaces. As we walk through how to organize content in Scalar with widgets, we will discuss basic writing strategies that can help you organize, polish, and present your research in any medium. 

This workshop serves as a companion to "Introduction to Scalar: Working with Media," though no prior experience with Scalar or web-based design necessary. All are welcome to participate!

STAY TUNED! The Spring workshop schedule will be live by the frist day of classes, 1/25/21.
