Getty Foundation Funds Institute for Art History Graduate Students at RRCHNM

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

The_Getty_Foundation_logo_blue_highresWe are thrilled to announce that the Getty Foundation awarded a second grant to the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media to organize and run another summer institute in digital art history. This year, the Getty Foundation asked us to focus on graduate students in Masters and Doctoral programs.

Participants will learn from experienced RRCHNM and GMU faculty whose expertise span a range of digital humanities methodologies. Together with returning Project Co-Directors, Sheila Brennan and Sharon Leon, are Lisa Rhody, Stephanie Westcott, Lincoln Mullen, and Michele Greet.

“Building a Digital Portfolio” will run from July 13 to July 24, 2015 at George Mason University’s Fairfax campus. This institute is part of an ongoing initiative from the Getty Foundation to increase adoption of digital methodologies and use of digital tools across the fields of art history.

During the summer of 2014, RRCHNM ran a Getty-sponsored institute for established faculty, librarians, and museum professionals. Learn more about their experiences on the ReBuilding the Portfolio: DH for Art Historians website.

Applications will open Monday, February 9, 2015. If you wish to receive an email indicating applications have opened, leave your name and contact information on the form available on the “Building a Digital Portfolio” (more…)
