Gregory VanHoosier-Carey on "Penetration and Insinuation of Rape"


The primary areas for discussion during the ElaborationStage are included below. Basically, our goal during this stage is to arrive at an understanding of all materials that will be necessary to begin the voice-over recording and compilation process. This means fleshing out the content area (i.e., what you will be speaking about in your scholarly voice-over) and the on-screen documents that will be available to the students for examination while the voice-over is playing.

  • The Content Area
    As you determine in greater detail what you wish to discuss in your scholarly voice-over, feel free to include notes within this section, inquire about how this content area might work with other areas being discussed in the application, and provide suggestions that might help us to track down further documents to be featured during your scholarly voice-over.

  • Quote Cards
    We suggest 1 to 3 "quote cards" that feature a quote from a historical figure such as someone involved with the production of the film or a protest against it, or which draw on the work of other noted scholars in the field. Use this area to include the quote and bibliographic information associated with the quote. We suggest that quote cards have no more than 10 lines of text (3 to 7 is the ideal range).

  • Documents for Inclusion
    Beginning with the preliminary list of documents that we provided during the first phase of collaboration, we would like to build a full list of primary documents that can be used in conjunction with your voice-over. You should think about the best time in your voice-over for these items to come into view.

  • Script/Outline
    Our various scholars may all have very different working styles when it comes to drawing up a script or outline to work from when being recorded for inclusion in our application, Griffith in Context. However, there are two things that we would like you to pay particular attention to. First, we would like each of our scholars to time a trial run of their voice-over and include the time in this section. We have various requirements in terms of file size and have run some preliminary tests on the ideal length of the voice-overs. Both of these will affect the duration of your voice-over. Secondly, when you include a script or outline in this area of the coweb, we would like you to indicate where certain documents will come into view, so that we may abide by your instructions when compiling this portion of the application.

When these areas are filled in, we can move along to the next phase which involves scheduling a time for us to record your voice-over.
