Rebuilding in Progress

As Day Two comes to an end, the work has definitely begun. All of the participants now have their own web spaces thanks to Reclaim Hosting, where they are blogging their experiences and daily responses. We have installed the PressForward Plugin to aggregate their posts. You can find most of the latest posts in the Participant Posts category linked from the navigation menu.

In addition to the posts, you can follow our daily conversations on twitter with the hashtag #doingdah14. We have also linked our working glossary from the navigation menu, under Schedule.

Getting Ready to Rebuild that Portfolio

The Rebuilding the Portfolio team is busy preparing for the arrival of our cohort that includes 22 art historians, librarians, and museum professionals. Our schedule is now available with readings for the institute, while we continue to refine the daily activities and resources. Feel free to follow along with our progress in July.

We are excited to be working together in one of Mason’s active learning classrooms. Institute Co-Director, Sharon Leon, is a member of the inaugural faculty team working in this new classroom environment and assessing how learning spaces influence pedagogy. If you wish to learn more about the teaching and learning experiences of faculty and students in the past academic year, watch this short video .

Applications Open

Join us July 7-18, 2014 for Rebuilding the Portfolio: DH for Art Historians, a summer institute at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History in New Media, George Mason University, supported by the Getty Foundation.

Rebuilding the Portfolio: DH for Art Historians is designed for 20 art historians, from different stages of their careers and from varied backgrounds, including faculty, curators, art librarians, and archivists who are eager to explore the digital turn in the humanities.

We seek applications from individuals who have had very limited or no training in using digital methods and tools, or in computing.

Take a peek at our proposed schedule, and apply today. Applications will be open until March 15, 2014.
