Visualizing Venice Workshop: Mapping and Modeling the Ghetto of Venice
Venice International University, 8–20 June 2016

Applications due by 31 March 2016

With the support of The Getty Foundation as part of its Digital Art History initiative, The Wired! Lab at Duke University, Università Iuav di Venezia, the University of Padua, and Venice International University are collaborating on a summer workshop that will train art, architectural, and urban historians with the digital media that can enhance or transform their research questions and their capacity to communicate narratives about objects, places, and spaces to the public.

This fifth annual 12-day workshop teaches a range of digital skills in mapping, 3D modeling, mobile application and web development, and time based media authorship to enable participants to engage historical questions with emerging digital tools. The course will engage with the Ghetto of Venice on the 500th anniversary of its creation as case study for training with a variety of technologies and applications. Instruction will be given in English by faculty and staff from Duke University’s Wired! Lab and Università Iuav di Venezia.

The workshop is designed for PhD or post doctoral participants in the interpretive humanities (including cultural patrimony, history of art, architecture and urbanism, history, geography, architecture, archaeology, and other relevant disciplines). Preference will be given to PhD students and recent PhD graduates in the history of art, architecture, and urbanism. The workshop is taught at Venice International University on the island of San Servolo in the Venetian Lagoon. Participants can live in the housing facilities of the island of San Servolo or arrange for accommodation in the city of Venice. Tuition fees are 1,000€ (+22%VAT). Scholarships are available in order to support tuition, travel, board, and accommodation expenses thanks to the generosity of The Getty Foundation.
