TRAN(S)MISSIONS
how multimediality shapes interdisciplinary research
in the field of Italian and Visual Culture Studies

10-19 September 2021, Università degli Studi di Roma Tre
 in collaboration with the Virtual Humanities Lab @ Brown University


The "digital revolution" forces us both to rethink the correspondences between
art and science and to reconsider the role of technologies in literature. The
Summer School Tran(s)missions: how multimediality shapes interdisciplinary
research in the field of Italian and Visual Culture Studies explores the meaning
of interdisciplinarity and multimediality using a synergistic approach that
combines different methodologies coming from the field of Italian Studies,
Digital Humanities, studies on digital cultures and research methods focused on
the materiality of the object. Through the application in a laboratory form of
the devices used in Digital Humanities, the Summer School stimulates innovative
interdisciplinary thinking, and provide participants with the tools suitable for
the identification of relationships that affect the multimediality from the
textual, visual and spatial point of view, and how it is presented in different
media, forms and literary sources in the early modern and contemporary world.
The inclusion of scholars and artists working in the international field, and
coming from different sectors, is seen in a dialogical key to widen the debate
around Digital Humanities and digital cultures, in order to encourage a
comparison between different methodologies and alternative procedures involving
the field of Italian Studies.

The program, in hybrid format online and in person at the Department of
Humanities of Roma Tre (via Ostiense 234, Rome), includes morning classes and
afternoon workshops dedicated to the realization of a research project and a
finalexhibition. The lessons will be held in Italian and English. Among the
proposed activities are round-tables, one-to-one tutorials and group workshops,
visits to institutions and informal discussions on the topics addressed by the
Summer School. The visits will take place at the Gagosian, Lorcan O'Neill,
Gladstone and Frutta Galleries, the Domus Transitoria, Santa Maria Antiqua,
Palazzo Valentini, the Centrale Montemartini and the Giardino degli Aranci,
while the exhibition will take place in virtual form on the New Art City Virtual
Art Space (https://newart.city/) and on site at Spazio Taverna (Palazzo Taverna,
Rome). The research and discussion results will be published on the GitHub
platform. It will also be possible to participate in a conference and produce a
special edition in the form of a catalogue with the presentation of the works
and theoretical contributions made in occasion of the Summer School.

The call to participate in the Summer School is open to students and
researchers, artists, curators, library science specialists, engineers,
technicians-archivists who conduct interdisciplinary studies in the field of
Italian and Cultural Studies, opening their perspectives of investigation to the
relationship between word and image, visual culture, media studies, material
culture studies, film studies, digital storytelling, creative writing, digital
and public humanities, visual arts, art history, history, and computer science.
A good knowledge of English is desirable.

To participate you should send a short c.v. accompanied by a headshot, and a
motivational letter (500 words) with a presentation of the project you intend to
carry out during the Summer School to the email address:
transmissions2021@gmail.com. The deadline
