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.
