The Venice Centre for Digital and Public Humanities (VeDPH) is pleased  to announce the "Venice Summer School in Digital and Public Humanities 2024", from 8 to 12 July.

# Purpose of the School
The Venice Summer School in Digital and Public Humanities provides  advanced and in-depth training in theories, technologies and methods 
applied to historical monuments, artefacts and texts. Focussing on cultural, archaeological, historical, literary, and artistic materials 
from Venetian sites and cultural heritage institutions, participants will engage in debates about digital cultural heritage and public 
humanities while enhancing their competences and skills in digitising materials and sources and in modelling, analysing and visualising 
multimedia humanities data.

# Contents and schedule
The Summer School takes place at historical sites and cultural venues across the city of Venice and its surroundings. Each day is dedicated to a specific academic field: archaeology, history, art history and textual scholarship. Teaching formats include lectures, hands-on workshops,  guided tours and experimental performances. Units are planned and delivered by local experts and invited specialists. All classes will be taught in English. The programme includes “Meet the Expert” sessions for discussing the participants’ individual research projects with domain experts.

# Eligibility and admission criteria
The Summer  School warmly welcomes PhD students, postdocs and practitioners from the private, public, and non-governmental sectors. 
Applicants must hold at least a Master’s degree or equivalent at the time of application.
