The newest education offer of the Centre for the Study of Medicine and the Body in the Renaissance is the Online Winter School which will take place on 12-15 February 2024. It is organised by Fabrizio Bigotti and Manuel Huth.
Studiolo Digital Humanities Lab is a new Winter School format designed to meet the needs of those who, both inside and outside of academia, are faced with the digital revolution and want to make the most of it.
Its interdisciplinary format allows participants to get a feel for the potential of new media, while acquiring basic coding skills, knowledge of 3D modelling, Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and key concepts in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Large Language Models (LLM), as well as tools for communicating with experts in the field.
A Comprehensive Programme
The programme, spanning four days, will allow participants to interact with leading academics who have or are currently working as PI in important digital humanities projects in the history of art, medicine, science, philosophy, as well as philology and archaeology. It is designed to offer a comprehensive skillset at the end of which participants will be familiar with the main features of the field and will have the tools to shape their own projects.
Beyond frontal lectures, participants will have the opportunity to connect with a network of international scholars in a variety of fields, including both emerging and established figures.
Emphasising the acquisition of practical skills, the Winter School requires no prior knowledge of coding or other skills. It caters to individuals from different backgrounds and career stages. Participants will be provided training by means of frontal lectures, Q&As, workshops and a series of exercises in breakout sessions.
