Applications are now being accepted for the 2016 Visualizing Venice workshop: The Ghetto of Venice. The workshop will take place June 8-20, 2016, in Venice, Italy. Application deadline: March 31, 2016.
With the support of The Getty Foundation as part of its Digital Art History initiative, The Wired! Lab at Duke University, Università Iuav di Venezia, the University of Padua, and Venice International University are collaborating on a Summer Workshop that will train Art, Architectural and Urban Historians with the digital media that can enhance or transform their research questions and their capacity to communicate narratives about objects, places and spaces to the public. This fifth annual 12-day workshop teaches a range of digital skills in mapping, 3D modeling, mobile application & web development, and time based media authorship to enable participants to engage historical questions with emerging digital tools. The course will engage with the Ghetto of Venice on the 500th anniversary of its creation as case study for training with a variety of technologies and applications.
Instruction will be given in English by faculty and staff from Duke University's Wired! Lab (http://dukewired.org) and Università Iuav di Venezia.
