    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: This assignment includes two readings, a live-broadcast assignment, and a reflective blog post into which a recording of the live session is embedded. The result is a strongly multimodal text that includes words, sounds, and images while also serving as a snapshot of a live event. Further context about the project can be found in Wright’s “Live from Your Palm,” and although the class was geared to journalism students, its potential usefulness is more general. The unit might be reframed as a way of documenting interactive media in situ: filming the action of game play, recording interactions with virtual reality, or documenting activist events such as marches and protests. Periscope relies on vertical video, which, as the author notes, is typically seen as a stylistic faux pas. “Vertical Cinema Manifesto,” which argues for verticality as a feminist representation (Ross), would be a nice addition to the unit.
