Beyond the Digitized Slide Library
July 5-15, 2015

Beyond the Digitized Slide Library is an eight-day summer institute to be
held at the University of California, Los Angeles, July 5-15, 2015.
Participants will learn about debates and key concepts in the digital
humanities and gain hands-on experience with tools and techniques for art
historical research (including data visualization, network graphs, and
digital mapping). More fundamentally, the Institute will be an opportunity
for participants to imagine what digital art history can be: What
constitutes art historical “data”? How shall we name and classify this
data? Which aspects of art historical knowledge are amenable to
digitization, and which aspects resist it?

With major support for the program provided by the Getty Foundation,
participants will receive travel and lodging in Los Angeles for the duration
of the Institute. UCLA’s team of leading digital humanities technologists
will be joined by faculty members Johanna Drucker (Bernard and Martin
Breslauer Professor of Bibliography, Information Studies), Todd Presner
(Chair, Digital Humanities Program, and Professor of Germanic Languages and
Comparative Literature), and Miriam Posner (Digital Humanities Program
Coordinator and Institute Director).

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. If you have questions about eligibility, please contact
Institute Director Miriam Posner at mposner at humnet.ucla.edu.

Please apply online at http://www.humanities.ucla.edu/getty

Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. PST on March 1, 2015.

Thank you for helping us spread the word about this opportunity. Please dolet me know if I can provide further information about this opportunity.
