Beyond the Digitized Slide Library is an eight-day summer institute currently underway at the University of California, Los Angeles, July 28–August 6, 2014. Major support for the program has been provided by the Getty Foundation. Participants are learning about debates and key concepts in the digital humanities and gaining hands-on experience with tools and techniques for art historical research (including metadata basics, data visualization, network graphs, and digital mapping).
Want to follow along? You can see our collaborative notes here, follow the Twitterstream at #doingdah14, and see photos from the Institute here. We’re also posting slides and lecture notes as they become available.
