        Subject: Digital and Public Humanities - New Master Programme in Venice (in English)

Dear digital humanists,

I am very pleased to announce a new master's degree in Digital and Public
Humanities at Ca' Foscari University of Venice. This two-year Masters
programme combines the theories and practices established in the humanities
with learning new digital tools, platforms and applications used to
research, archive, present and publish in the creative and cultural
sectors. This programme explores public engagement with digital  humanities
and offers graduates the opportunities to learn the skills and knowledge
required to pursue careers in a wide range of areas, including the cultural
and creative sectors, education, libraries and archives, information
technology and service related organisations. All classes are taught in

Ca' Foscari has now established the Venice Centre for Digital and Public
Humanities (VeDPH)  - inaugurated one year ago
today - which has many research activities relating to public engagement
with the humanities and digital technologies. This research informs the
teaching on this Masters programme with VeDPH academics teaching and
working closely with students. Many projects have affiliations to cultural
organisations in Venice and throughout Italy.

The intersection of art and science and engagement with the public around
digital humanities is central to the theme of this masters programme.
Working with local Venetian cultural organisations, researchers and
academics in the Venice Digital and Public Humanities Centre (VeDPH), and
Science Gallery Venice, a specialised programme of courses has been
designed to explore all aspects of digital and public humanities.

This Master's programme offers a comprehensive exploration of the different
tools and methods used to engage public audiences around culture, history,
critical thinking, visual arts, literature, archaeology, languages,
technology, and the creative economy.

Courses include: public and digital history, digital scholarly editing and
analysis of ancient, medieval and modern texts, digital manuscript and
archival studies, digital and technical art history, public art and
digitisation practices, heritage, ethics and political archaeology,
database technologies, information visualisation, data management and legal
issues, design thinking, web and user experience design, and creative
