UCLA's Digital Humanities program has received a grant from the Getty Foundation to offer an institute on digital humanities and art history in the summer of 2014. "Beyond the Digitized Slide Library" will provide digital humanities training, instruction, and context for twelve art historians over the course of eight days on UCLA's campus. Participants will learn about debates and key concepts in the digital humanities, gain hands-on experience with tools and techniques for art historical research, and explore possibilities for the conjunction of these two fields.
Participants will be selected on the basis of their ability to formulate compelling research questions about the conjunction of digital humanities and art history, as well as their potential to disperse the material they glean to colleagues at their home institutions and to the field at large.
Applicants must possess an advanced degree in art history or a related field. The application is open to faculty members, curators, independent scholars, and other professionals who conduct art historical research. We define “art history” broadly to include the study of art objects and monuments of all times and places. Current graduate students are not eligible to apply.
Please apply online at http://www.humanities.ucla.edu/getty/. Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. PST on March 1, 2014.
