OPPORTUNITY: Art Resources on the Web Workshop

“Art Resources on the Web: Introduction to Web Archive Data Analysis and Instruction,” scheduled for April 18, 2023 as a part of the ARLIS/NA 2023 Annual Conference in Mexico City, Mexico, will introduce participants to archiving and analyzing web-based art collections. Other sessions include learning more about how digital art can be a worthwhile and challenging resource for researchers, teachers, and librarians. Participants may apply for a travel stipend of up to $1,000. The priority deadline for applications is February 17. From the event website:

Everyday, significant cultural and artistic production occurs globally across the web (e.g., digital art, exhibition or gallery websites, news, social media, and more). As a publication medium that can be both a vehicle of information about art as well as the art itself, the web presents challenges of scale and complexity for those that seek to preserve contemporary art history and integrate it in research and teaching. During this workshop participants will be introduced to web archives as a primary source, gain familiarity with web archive research use cases; and acquire hands-on experience creating web archive collections and computationally analyzing web archives using Archives Research Compute Hub (ARCH).

Registration is limited and with generous support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, participant travel stipends are available to offset costs incurred to participate in the workshop. Each stipend can reimburse up to $1,000 in travel expenses, to offset air and/or ground transportation, parking, two nights’ lodging, and food costs incurred to participate in the workshop.
