This virtual exhibition –open from December 16, 2020 to February 16, 2021– presents a record of all events and activities that the professors of the Department of Huamnities (DSU) organised in 2019, in order to disseminate the research topics studied at the department towards students, colleagues and the wider public. The posters of these public events held in 2019 allow us to observe how specific research and teaching activities were disseminated outside the Department; and how the active participation of students was fostered by means of specific meetings on topics connected to history, archaeology, Italian studies, classics, anthropology and epigraphy.
The Department of Humanities of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice and the Venice Centre for Digital and Public Humanities (VeDPH) invite expressions of interest for two positions: Visiting Professor in Digital and Public History and Visiting Professor in Digital Textual Scholarship.
