The VeDPH is continuing its seminar series in Digital and Public Humanities in an online format.
The Spring cycle includes seminars on a wide range of topics: from digital and public art history to advanced imaging, from cyber archaeology to open access comics studies, from public history to digital classics. The seminars, delivered by scholars and experts from different countries, are a great opportunity to discuss topics related to digital and public humanities with students, academics, researchers, professionals, and the general public.
The Venice Centre for Digital and Public Humanities organizes, during the Master in Digital and Public Humanities, a series of research seminars, held by professionals in the field, on two topics related to Public Art and digitization practices: Planning and selling a database solution (Galleria Spada) ; Public Art and environmental engagement (Art for sustainability)
The Venice Centre for Digital and Public Humanities (VeDPH), based at the Department of Humanities, gladly announces the publication of its inaugural volume 2020 of magazén, International Journal for Digital and Public Humanities, the interdisciplinary journal undergoing double-blind peer-review and published twice per year in open access by Edizioni Ca’ Foscari. The journal aims at stimulating an interdisciplinary discourse on methods and practices serving a collaborative development of durable, reusable, shared resources for research and learning in the field of digital and public humanities. Volume 2020 features ten articles by international scholars divided in two issues and devoted to the topic of “Fusions”, thus analysing the intertwining landscape emerging from the recent development of digital and public humanities. Issue 1 can already be accessed online, while issue 2 will soon be made available on the same platform.
The Venice Centre for Digital and Public Humanities and the Department of Humanities are involved in Numbers&Culture, a project that aims to promote Cultural Heritage of the Venice countryside fostering the contamination between academic world and community. The challenge focuses on an interdisciplinary research that includes: an open data search on the web as a way to describe with numbers the features of the present landscape; a collection of historical memories; a past-present comparison of the landscape changes by uploading pictures on the Instagram channel of the project.
