Huffman at Venice Digital Humanities Workshop

November 29, 2018

Kristin Huffman’s research and collaborative digital project “Jacopo de’ Barbari’s Marvelous View of 1500″ will be showcased at the University of Minnesota’s Venice Digital Humanities Workshop presented by the Consortium for the Study of the Premodern World on November 30th, 2018. Huffman writes, “This digital project brings to life the city of Venice through Jacopo de’ Barbari and Anton Kolb’s iconic View of Venice. Even though scholars consistently refer to the mural-sized woodblock print as a visual document of the city as it appeared in 1500, this project is the first time that the View becomes a centerpiece for engaging with the life of Venice.”

Huffman is also presenting “Picturing the Venetian State: Celebrations of Dogaressa Morosini and Doge Grimani” at the University of Minnesota on November 29, 2018. This lecture “contextualizes the many representations that focus on Morosina, including her lavish Coronation as Dogaressa [of Venice] in 1597, in addition to those of Marino Grimani as her companion.”
