Scheduled for 3:30-4:20 in Room 601, 66 W 12th Street
In this session, I’m interested in exploring Tumblr as an introductory platform for digital scholarship. This session will provide an overview of the platform, strong examples of use rooted in scholarship and access, and finally select and post sample content to our own test blog using open access materials.
This session will take a closer look at a popular social media powerhouse made for the presentation of multimedia materials, and how the DH community can take full advantage of the platform. Flexible, intuitive, and familiar to many new users, this platform supports clear opportunities for scholarship through design, display, discovery, and description. This session aims to provide an overview of the key features of this platform, as well as outline the opportunities presented by the platform for scholarship and creation within the DH community.
