I’d like to explore scalar as a platform for investigating the intersections of material feminisms, posthumanisms, feminist science studies, ecofeminisms, and other related difference feminisms with digital media. If, as Haraway claims, we are all cyborgs (1985), then what implications might this have for women and their interaction with nature and technology? How might scalar offer a means of representing, understanding, exploring, and instigating discourse on feminism and technology, or feminism and media? This would also allow for collaborative efforts in that others could post on the scalar website and discuss the questions, issues, and subjects raised by the scalar project.
I use a kinetic typography assignment in my classes to teach the basics of making animations and adding interactivity in Edge animate. It’s not terribly advanced. Edge is pretty easy to work with (at least compared to Flash, which it replaced). I’d be happy to share the assignment and teach it if people are interested.
