Duke University Press and NYU’s Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics Collaborate on Scalar Projects


Duke University Press has just announced the launch of two new Scalar works published in collaboration with the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics at New York University.

Dancing with the Zapatistas, edited by Diana Taylor and Lorie Novak, explores the history, culture and life of Zapatistas through essays, photo essays, interviews, as well as spoken word and theatrical performances. The work offers insights into the workings of the Zapatista Council on Good Government; the murals in the Caracoles; the Escuelita; Subcomandante Marcos; and Zapatista music and celebrations.

What is Performance Studies?, edited by Diana Taylor and Marcos Steuernagel, seeks to explore the depths of the field by posing the title’s question to thirty leading scholars from seven different countries throughout the Americas and then documenting their answers. The book features video interviews, transcribed, translated, and subtitled into English, Spanish, and Portuguese, accompanied by short essays.

NEH-Mellon Fellowships for Digital Publication


Today’s a great day for digital research and scholarship in the humanities. The National Endowment for the Humanities and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation today announced a new joint fellowship opportunity to support high-quality “born digital” research in the humanities. Co-sponsored by the NEH Office of Digital Humanities, NEH Division of Research, and the Mellon Foundation’s Scholarly Communications Program, this new set of fellowships -the NEH-Mellon Fellowships for Digital Publication– are intended to encourage scholars engaged in humanities research that will lead to a digital publication. Eligible projects must be conceived as digital; the nature of the research and the topics addressed must demand presentation beyond traditional print publication. “Successful projects,” according to Brett Bobley, Director of the NEH’s Office of Digital Humanities, “will likely incorporate visual, audio, and/or other multimedia materials or flexible reading pathways that could not be included in traditionally published books.” In other words, the NEH and Mellon are looking for projects exactly like those conceived, composed and constructed in Scalar!

Application guidelines for NEH-Mellon Fellowships for Digital Publication are available at The application deadline for the initial cycle is April 28, so time is limited!

NEH-Mellon Fellowships for Digital Publication are designed for individual researchers and scholars and support continuous full-time work for a period of six to twelve months. Successful applicants receive a stipend of $4,200 per month, with a maximum stipend of $50,400 for a twelve-month period.

Great thanks to our friends at the NEH’s Office of Digital Humanities and the Mellon Foundation for making this possible.
