Max Planck Society Research Cooperation Project / UZH Zentrum für Digital Visual Studies

The Max Planck Society funds a five-year research cooperation project hosted by the University of Zurich. The project’s aim is to establish Digital Visual Studies as to expand Art History towards the Digital Humanities, to modernize its methodologies and to contribute in forming the first generation of Digital Visual Humanists. The project, headed by an Executive Committee, includes six Predoctoral Fellows and several Postdoctoral Fellows and Visiting Fellows, who will work in the areas of visual, textual and spatiotemporal research. Moreover, the project co-funds a six-year Assistant Professor for Digital Visual Studies. A Research Coordinator, a Research Software Engineer and a Secretary help in running the project, which is tightly connected with a first-rate national and international network of partner institutions and digital initiatives. The cooperative project will generate avant-garde research and methodological, technical and intellectual innovation.
