TRAN(S)MISSIONS

how multimediality shapes interdisciplinary research
in the field of Italian and Visual 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 Digital Humanities,
from studies on digital cultures and from 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 brings participants closer
to the knowledge of the tools suitable for the identification of thematic
relationships that affect the computational world from the textual, visual and
spatial point of view, as it is presented in different media, forms and literary
sources. 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. Through
a series of meetings within the epistemological framework of multimedia,
Tran(s)missions offers the possibility to confront the transformations involving
the field of Italian Studies, to be understood in its broader meaning of
Cultural 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, a
virtual and on-site exhibition. The lessons will be held in Italian and English.
Among the proposed activities are round-tables, one-to-one tutorials and group
workshops, coffee breaks, recreational activities of Geocaching, gallery walks
and visits to institutions and discussions in the form of aperitif 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). The output of the Summer School includes the publication 
of the data produced 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 from 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 in the Summer School, you should send a short c.v., a
motivational letter (500 words) with a presentation of the project you intend to
carry out during the Summer School and a headshot to the email address:
