Digital Visual Studies is a five-year cooperation project funded by the Max Planck Society and hosted by the University of Zurich, starting January 2020. The project’s aim is to establish Digital Visual Studies as to expand Art History towards the Digital Humanities, to modernize its methodologies and to contribute in forming the first generation of Digital Visual Humanists. The project, headed by an Executive Committee, includes six Predoctoral Fellows and several Postdoctoral Fellows and Visiting Fellows, who will work in the areas of visual, textual and spatiotemporal research. Moreover, the project co- funds a six-year Assistant Professor for Digital Visual Studies. Digital Visual Studies is tightly connected with a first-rate national and international network of partner institutions and digital initiatives, such as the Digital Society Initiative at UZH; Villa I Tatti, The Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies, Florence; Swiss Art Research Infrastructure SARI, University of Zurich / ETH Zurich / SIK-ISEA and the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science MPIWG, Berlin.
This cooperative project seeks to generate avant-garde research and methodological, technical and intellectual innovation.
