Beyond the Digitized Slide Library is an eight-day summer institute at the University of California, Los Angeles, July 5–15, 2015. Major support for the program is provided by the Getty Foundation. Participants will learn about debates and key concepts in the digital humanities and gain hands-on experience with tools and techniques for art historical research (including metadata basics, data visualization, network graphs, and digital mapping).

Thanks to the support of the Getty Foundation, there are no fees associated with the program, and participants will receive travel and lodging in Los Angeles for the duration of the Institute.

UCLA’s team of leading digital humanities technologists is joined by faculty members:

  • Johanna Drucker (Bernard and Martin Breslauer Professor of Bibliography, Information Studies)
  • Todd Presner (Chair, Digital Humanities Program, and Professor of Germanic Languages and Comparative Literature).
  • Miriam Posner (Digital Humanities Program Coordinator and Institute Director)

Francesca Albrezzi, a Ph.D. candidate in UCLA’s World Arts and Cultures department, is the Institute’s Graduate Research Associate and Logistics Coordinator.


This is the second Getty Foundation-supported institute on digital humanities and art history at UCLA. For information on last year’s institute, please see our websitecollaborative notes, tweets, and photos. We’ve also posted slides and lecture notes whenever possible, and we’ve created a Storify of the 2014 institute.
