The course is structured around two thematic modules complementing each other:

Module 1: Artistic culture and data-centric society: access, structure, analysis and data visualization (15 hours).

This module is committed to collaboratively analyze the opportunities offered by the access to large data sets of cultural in order to extract new strategic knowledge, develop new interpretive approaches and build new stories. There will be analyzed and discussed about the existing different methodologies, analytical strategies, software, work environments, metadata standards, etc.; that is, everything essential to interact in innovative and creative ways within society data toolkit.

Module 2: New models of stories, digital narratives and interfaces (15 hours).

This module is committed to investigate new ways to tell stories and construct narratives providing the specificity of digital media and audiovisual language. To do this, from a transdisciplinary perspective, the experiments carried out by the electronic literature as well as new media specific projects will be scanned in order to explore how these proposals can become interesting models for the construction of the accounts of the art history and visual culture. In addition, participants acquire skills for handling specific tools and environments easing development of these new narratives.
