Metadata Central 2.0: Digital Research Project Launchpad Workshop Series
Winter and Spring 2018
Metadata 2.0 is a two-quarter training program that enables UC graduate students and faculty to work on a digital project with metadata experts from around the UC system. This program builds off of Metadata Central, a similar training program run by UCLA’s Center for Digital Humanities.
Each participant will be assigned to one of five experts and will meet with this expert regularly throughout the program. There will also be three opportunities for participants to workshop their projects with the entire group of participants and experts.
The grant covers costs, lodging, and meals for the Metadata 2.0 on-site workshop on January 29–30, 2018. Participants are also eligible to apply for up to $200 in funding toward their projects.
3D Photogrammetry for Cultural Heritage is a one-week training workshop on photogrammetry for early-stage graduate students. Participants in this workshop will gain intensive hands-on experience in the techniques and processing workflow for photogrammetric recording for cultural heritage projects, presented within the context of a critical engagement in discussions of the politics of digital knowledge production.
10 graduate students from across the UC system will be selected to participate. You should be working directly on a research project in which the 3D documentation of cultural heritage can add significant value. The workshop will take place March 25–31. Only students who can attend the entire workshop will be considered.
