Visualizing Venice: the City and the Lagoon. 3-13 June 2014, Venice. Taught by Caterina Balletti, Università Iuav di Venezia; Isabella di Lenardo, Università Iuav di Venezia; and Victoria Szabo, Duke University, this course will teach a range of digital skills in 3D modeling, visualization, and mapping technologies to enable participants to engage historical questions with emerging digital tools. As in the previous editions of the workshop, the technologies will be taught through the use of a theme: in 2014 the focus will be on Venice and its islands. Participants will use the city and the lagoon as a “laboratory” through which to examine questions such as change over time and dynamic process in urban and rural environments, showing how man-made spaces respond to social and economic process and transformation. The aim of the workshop is to train scholars in how new technologies can be integrated with the study of historical and material culture. The workshop will focus on a range of visualization tools that can be used in a wide variety of research areas, in particular modeling change over time in urban space and the production of maps and low-cost photogrammetry. Apply online. Deadline 15 March 2014.
