The Faculty of History is pleased to announce that Dr Emanuela Vai has been awarded a EU Horizon Global Challenges Cofund Scheme for her research on ‘Fantastic Musical Instruments of the Global Renaissance’ (Digital Humanities and Heritage).
The aim of the Scheme is to strengthen high-profile international, interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral research, bridging the gaps between academic and applied research. Dr Vai’s project combines the analysis of historical musical objects with 3D virtual modelling to investigate the material dimensions of Renaissance music cultures. The project, based with the Ashmolean Museum at the University of Oxford, and funded by the British Academy, will expand its horizons with the EU Cofund.
Dr Vai will develop interdisciplinary and international collaborations with the Research Institute for Digital and Cultural Heritage, and the Centre for Cultural Heritage Technology at Ca’ Foscari, Venice.
