        Subject: Summer Institute: Advanced Topics in Digital Art History-3D Geospatial Networks

Advanced Topics in Digital Art History: 
3D and (Geo)Spatial Networks

June 4-16, 2018 in Venice, Italy

Digital Technologies for Historical and Cultural visualization are 
transforming the ways that scholars can study and represent works of 
art, as well as growth and change in urban spaces and structures.

With the support of The Getty Foundation as part of its Digital Art 
History initiative, The Wired! Lab for Digital Art History & Visual 
Culture at Duke University, the University of Padua'˜s Architecture and 
Engineering program and Venice International University are 
collaborating on a Summer Workshop that will support interdisciplinary 
teams focused on the hard questions of Digital Art History as a 
discipline, a set of methods, and a host of technical and institutional 
challenges and opportunities.

After five editions of two-weeks summer workshops introducing concepts 
and methods for digital art and architectural history through hands-on 
tutorials and collaborative project development, the program for 2018 
will shift to focus on advancing the field of digital art and 
architectural history through a combination of project-sharing, 
technology exploration, and academic discussion. After the initial 
two-week gathering in Venice, we still stay in touch as a community over 
the course of the next year, reconvening for one week in 2019 to write 
up and assess our work.

This workshop is different than our earlier Visualizing Venice workshop 
iterations in that we are asking people to apply as teams of 2 or 3, and 
with a Digital Art History Mapping and/or Modeling project already in 
place, and which they hope to develop further in conversation with the 
group. The focus of applicant projects does not need to be on Venice or 
Visualizing Cities, though projects related to those themes are welcome. 
We will expect participants to share their working projects files with 
the group, and will work with selected participating teams in advance of 
the meeting to customize the curriculum to fit the needs and interests 
of the group.

Alums of our previous introductory workshops are welcome to apply, as 
are new participants, from the US and abroad. Thanks to the generosity 
of the Getty Foundation, we are able to offer support for tuition, 
travel, board and accommodation expenses.
