CAA Talks – Scalar and New Directions in Queer Theory and Art
Posted on February 10, 2013 by michamaya
I’ll be a busy bee at the College Art Association next week in New York. I’m doing a workshop on scalar at THATcamp as well as one at the official CAA conference. I’m also presenting on a panel with a handful of other amazing artists. The queer theory/art panel is open to the public, and is sponsored by the New Media Caucus. See you there!

Limit: 25 participants.
Free and open to the public, but registration is required.
This free workshop invites participants to consider the possibilities for their work of emerging forms of digital scholarship. Participants will consider how digital platforms permit them to create media-rich and interactive publications that bring scholarly analysis and visual media together in lively and engaging ways. At the heart of the workshop is a hands-on introduction to the digital authoring platform, Scalar, a project funded by the Mellon Foundation as part of the Alliance for Networking Visual Culture. Participants must bring a laptop with wireless capability to the workshop.
