This spring, the DH Center welcomed three new student assistants to the team. They’ll be working to develop new tutorials for us focused on Scalar, a tool designed for nonlinear narrative. Learn more at our Teach DH website.

Hi! My name is Mik and I am a second-year Master’s student in the department of Women’s Studies. My research takes a technofeminist approach to dissecting social media censorship, digital violence, and encoded sexual stigma. As a part of my research I have become increasingly interested in media learning ecologies and the pedagogical possibilities of engaging in new media technologies inside and outside the classroom. Currently, I am working on developing tutorials for Scalar, a new digital tool for authoring and publishing engaging and interactive multi-media projects. As someone with a humanities background, it has been exciting to begin navigating this tool that makes creating digital, visually compelling projects out of traditional, academic written work without needing advanced tech skills. I look forward to seeing you in the Digital Humanities Center in the future!

Hello, my name is Andrea Berreondo! I am a graduate student at the School of JMS. I am also a digital and marketing professional from SoCal who has had experience in graphic design, filmmaking, sound design, and other digital editing technologies. I have worked and interned with different community centers and organizations serving underrepresented communities through digital media and marketing strategies in the past. During my time at DHC I will conduct and create video tutorials on how to navigate the program tool Scalar. I am excited to not only learn about the program myself, but provide the necessary tools to allow for potential users to showcase their academic work, professional work, and other professional/academic knowledge.

Hello, My name is Alexandria Henderson and I am a fourth year student at SDSU majoring in English and minoring in Anthropology and Religious studies. I first learned about the Digital Humanities in Dr. Pressman’s ENG 560, “Digital Literature” class. This class inspired me to learn more about the Digital Humanities and incorporate aspects of the digital into my English Honors Thesis. I will be creating tutorials for Scalar, which is a tool used to incorporate multiple forms of media into a single work. I am very excited to be working as an assistant in the DH Center and look forward to learning about different tools and programs and sharing that knowledge with others.
