Call for Participation: Digital Visualization Workshop, "Visualizing Venice: The Biennale and the City,” June 1-12

Tuesday, April 14, 2015 - 7:00pm

UPDATED 4/6/2015:

Applications are now being accepted for the 2015 Visualizing Venice Workshop. In this ten-day workshop, participants engage with historical and cultural visualization technologies as they explore topics in art history, architecture, urban history, and new media studies related to Venice. The workshop will take place from June 1-12, 2015, at Venice International University in Venice, Italy.

This year’s theme, "The Biennale and the City,” will focus on the history of the Venice Biennale from several perspectives and scales of reference: as a case study in architectural history in the Giardini and the Arsenale; as a set of exhibitions undertaken both on those sites and in more ephemeral sites around the city; as an aggregation of artistic forces hailing from around the world; and as a phenomenon with a profound impact upon the life and culture of the city of Venice itself.

Scholars from Duke University and Università Iuav di Venezia will teach participants in a format that combines content on the Biennale with digital skills for digital mapping, 3D modeling, mobile application development, and time based media authorship, enabling participants to engage historical questions with emerging digital tools. As part of the workshop, participants will work collaboratively to create projects using the tools they have learned, with the goals of creating high-quality, public-facing research products suitable for a general audience and of identifying potential areas to explore in their own future research.

This workshop is designed for participants at the Ph.D or post-doctoral level in Interpretive Humanities (including Cultural Patrimony, History of Art, Architecture and Urbanism, History, Geography, Architecture, Archaeology, and other relevant disciplines). At the end of the course, participants are issued an official Duke University/Università Iuav/Venice International University joint Certificate.

Application deadline: April 15, 2015.

Thanks to the generosity of the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation and the Getty Foundation, accepted applicants will receive a stipend to help cover travel and lodging.

Visualizing Venice: The Biennale and the City is sponsored by Duke University, Università Iuav di Venezia, and Venice International University.

Hi Hannah,

This looks amazing!! I would LOVE to be a part of this project!!

I read on the criteria that it says, "This workshop is designed for participants at the Ph.D or post-doctoral level in Interpretive Humanities (including Cultural Patrimony, History of Art, Architecture and Urbanism, History, Geography, Architecture, Archaeology, and other relevant disciplines)." Will they consider post-Ed.S level? I have a double master's degree. An Ed.S. is half way between a masters and PhD.

My degree is in education. One of my teaching creditials is in Art Education. I would love to document the process of visualizing Venice as well as contribute to the final product. I think that it would be a wonderful learing experience to share the process of collaboration across disciplines. This project interest me as a teacher and as an artisit. Please let me know either way. Thank you!

Best Wishes,

Mechelle :)

Hi Mechelle,

I recommend that you go ahead and apply. If you can include in your application any work that you are doing that is relevant to the subject material and that would benefit from the workshop, that would help your application. Of course, space is limited, and competition in past years has been tough. There is no guarantee of admission, but I encourage you to try for it.

All best,

Hannah
