Re-launching Discovery: SAR Fellows In Their Own Words
Paul Ryer, Director of Scholar Programs
Today, in the spirit of Discovery, we are launching our first blog series, SAR Fellows: In Their Own Words. As with Discovery decades ago, we have asked each of our current Resident Scholars to put together a short account of the work they are doing here at SAR, aiming at a public rather than scholarly audience. Of course, times have changed, and instead of launching a new paper journal, this blog format allows us to quickly and efficiently reach readers across social media through SAR’s Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other media platforms. And building on this twenty-first century technology, we have invited the scholars to enrich their posts with images, videos, gifs, audio files, and hyperlinks, as relevant to their particular projects.
Welcome to SAR Fellows: In Their Own Words. I hope you will enjoy this window into the scholarly work taking place here at the School for Advanced Research, and will find the variety and quality of these projects to be outstanding, stimulating, and memorable.
