EPFL (The Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland) and Ca’ Foscari University of Venice have recently joined forces to establish a research center on digital humanities in Venice (for a press release, see http://actu.epfl.ch/news/the-venice-time-machine-science-humanities-and-the/). We have also launched a research program based on the digitization and transcription of one of the very large archive in Venice, the Archivio di Stato.
One of our first initiatives has been to organise a joint PhD fall school in Venice from October 7-11, 2013. During the five days in Venice, experts in the Digital Humanities from Harvard, King’s College, EPFL, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice and Italy’s Institute of Information Science and Technologies, will give seminars, hands-on workshops and in situ working visits to important Venetian archives, museums and neighburhoods. For more information about the program and the speakers, seehttp://bit.ly/DHV13.
Inscription is 400 Euros for the whole week and students must find their own financing for travel and lodging, but relatively inexpensive apartments have already been set aside for international students.
