This summer, doctoral candidate Melissa Fitzmaurice participated in the fifth year of the Visualizing Venice Summer School, organized by the Wired! Lab at Duke University, the University Iuav di Venezia, the University of Padua, and Venice International University. From June 8-20, Melissa and a cohort of international scholars were trained in digital technologies for historical and cultural visualization, including 3D modeling and digital mapping. This year’s program focused on the 500th anniversary of Ghetto of Venice, and culminated in the presentation of collaborative final projects that utilized the various technologies studied during the program to provide new perspectives on the Venetian Ghetto and its history. Melissa’s participation in Visualizing Venice was generously funded by the Getty Foundation. While in Venice, Melissa also attended the Architecture Biennale.
