Designing Posters For High-Impact Communication

All summer research students are invited to describe their efforts and results at the annual Summer Research Poster Presentation on September 11. This class will help you design and produce a large-format poster that will get your message across here and at many other conferences.

Through examples, analysis, and discussion, we will determine what makes a research poster successful. We will discuss visual design and rhetoric, effective use of graphics, and how to engage your audience.

We will also show you how to lay out your poster, including adding text, photos, illustrations, and graphics, and applying special effects. You have two options:

• Microsoft PowerPoint is a popular program to build computer presentations, and it can also be used to lay out print posters. It is not the best tool for the job but it is more readily available and perhaps more familiar to you. PowerPoint is part of Microsoft Office, which students, faculty, and staff can download for free.

• Adobe InDesign is the industry standard tool for creating posters as well as newsletters, brochures, and other print media. It is very similar to Photoshop and Illustrator but has other features that make it the best tool for combining text and graphics. Students can use Illustrator on their own computers with an Adobe Creative Cloud license.

This workshop is repeated three times with different tools:

PowerPoint: Monday, July 13, 6 PM - 8 PM or
InDesign: Tuesday, July 21, 6 PM - 8 PM or
PowerPoint: Wednesday, July 29, 6 PM - 8 PM

Light dinner provided at 5:30 PM in each meeting.

Emily Dickinson Project

The Emily Dickinson Project

Multiple possibilities of Emily Dickinson, each character a variation of the unique voice that makes up the single persona of the poet, form the basis of The Emily Dickinson Project, an immersive, site-specific play that traces the moments of Dickinson's life through a journey from her gardens through her home.

A co-production of TheatreTruck, a recently launched theatre collaborative in the Pioneer Valley, and The Emily Dickinson Museum, The Emily Dickinson Project opens on July 15 and plays through August 2. Performances are held Wednesday through Sunday at 8 p.m., and audiences are limited to 15 per night. It premiered at The Emily Dickinson Museum in summer 2014, selling out all of the performances and boosting interest in a return engagement.
