Bard Graduate Center 2023 Summer One-week Program
The Alliance of HBCU Museums and Galleries is partnering with Bard Graduate Center.
Ten students or recent graduates will be selected for this one-week program of study. “Digital Tools for a Question-Based Ecology” will expose participants to the history of questions we ask about tangible things and then offer training in digital tools that will help them ask and answer these questions in compelling ways. The goal of the summer school will be to present the questions and answers on a website that students will build, and in resident online exhibitions they will curate. The course is co-taught by Professor Peter N. Miller, Dean of BGC, and Dr. Jesse Merandy, Director of Digital Humanities/Digital Exhibitions at BGC. It is modeled on the digital literacy boot camp Merandy leads for incoming BGC MA and PhD students. Working with an object of their own, or one chosen from the BGC Study Collection, students will learn how to use WordPress and Sketchup to create opportunities for deep study at the point of encounter between things and people. The platforms created during this summer school can be used to present work done by students also registered for other Alliance-collaborating summer schools in 2023.
The program will provide the following:
