Dear colleagues,

It is a pleasure to announce the 2º edition of the International Summer 
School on Digital Art History, that will take place in Málaga (Spain), 
from September 4 to 13 (2017).

The application period is now open (until June 30). More information at: 

Following the success of the first edition last year, the International 
Summer School on Digital Art History (DAHSS), a joint initiative of the 
University of Málaga and the University of Berkeley, will celebrate the 
second edition from September 4 to 13 (2017), in Málaga (Spain).

Under the title of Data-Driven Analysis and Digital Narratives, DAHSS 
pursues two objectives:  a) to configure an interdisciplinary framework 
to expand the IT skills of students, scholars and professionals dealing 
with the production, representation and communication of knowledge in 
the fields of Art History, Visual Culture and Cultural Heritage; b) to 
build a environment where creative, innovative and collaborative 
research practices are encouraged and promoted.

The course has a theoretical-practical orientation: theoretical exchange 
and critical discussions will be combined with practical sessions 
(lab-based sessions), through which participants will work 
collaboratively in common projects. The results of these projects will 
be publicly presented the last day of the course.

The course is organized around two complementary modules.

Module 1 (Data-Driven Analysis) is devoted to discover the opportunities 
provided by the access to and the computational process of large 
cultural datasets to extract new knowledge, elaborate new interpretive 
approaches and build new stories about culture. A wide range of 
methodologies, analysis techniques, tools and softwares, as well as 
metadata structures will be explored and discussed.

Module 2 (Digital Narrative and Interfaces) is devoted to investigate 
new ways of telling stories about culture in the digital media. From a 
transdisciplinary perspective, it will be explored experiences performed 
by electronic literature and new media artists as inspiring models to 
consider in the building of new narratives in the field of Art History 
and Visual Culture. Complementary, participants will acquire 
competencies to manage certain tools which will enable them to build 
their own stories with the datasets analyzed in module 1.

Intended audience: postgraduate students, academic researchers, 
independent scholars and professionals related to the following 
disciplines: Art History and Visual Studies, Fine Arts, Graphic Design, 
Computer Sciences, Media and New Media Studies and Museum Studies.

Fee: 120€
