The Videntes Imaging Collective is delighted to announce its 2024 Summer Digital Humanities Institute held in Vercelli, Italy: Medieval Manuscripts in a Modern World. Participants will engage in five days of workshops, lectures, and labs designed around materials held by the Capitular Archives of Vercelli. In collaboration with the Museo del Tesoro di Vercelli and the Capitular Archives this institute will engage the use of traditional approaches to medieval texts such as codicology and paleography alongside innovative technologies such as multispectral imaging and photogrammetry, all with an eye towards using digital tools for knowledge-sharing, such as VisColl and Digital Mappa. Participants will learn about the DH project life cycle, meet like-minded international scholars, and experience a truly collaborative DH team at work.
