Dr. Chris Jones from the Department of History at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand, will lead an exciting Field Study for the DH BISC Field School. Dr. Jones’s Field Study will take students to two local parish churches in the UK to discuss the possibilities Digital Humanities opens up for the texts and artworks that remain at such sites. The Field Study will explore digitization practices for texts, art and architecture and consider best practices in the digital communication of place and context. This trip will include active assessments of a 1615 King James Bible and some of the best preserves 14th century medieval wall paintings in England. Student feedback will inform Dr. Jones’s on-going digitization project at the University of Canterbury.
Join Dr. Jones and the rest of the DH BISC Faculty this summer at Herstmonceux Castle!
