        Subject: Call for Participation: scholar advisory group for Pharos pilot project

Dear all,

Pharos, the international consortium of photo archives, is seeking
scholars to advise on a pilot project focused on bringing together the
digitized photo archives of five Pharos member institutions: the Frick
Art Reference Library (New York, USA); I Tatti, the Harvard University
Center for Italian Renaissance Studies (Florence, Italy); Fondazione
Federico Zeri (Bologna, Italy); Bibliotheca Hertziana – Max Planck
Institute for Art History (Rome, Italy); and Deutsches
Dokumentationszentrum für Kunstgeschichte – Bildarchiv Foto Marburg
(Marburg, Germany).

The details of the call and more information about Pharos can be found
on the consortium’s website:

We are particularly interested in scholars who can help expand the use
of photo archives, using them to tell more global, more inclusive
histories of art. We are also interested in scholars who might help us
envision innovative, computational methods for analyzing images at scale.

Please apply if you are interested and/or pass the call along to your
interested colleagues!

All best,
