Francesca Albrezzi




Francesca Albrezzi is currently a PhD student in the department of World Arts and Cultures/ Dance and enrolled in the Digital Humanities Graduate Certificate program through UCLA's Center for Digital Humanities. She completed her MA thesis entitled "Visiting Digital Tombstones: Unearthing Questions of Digital Personhood, Commemoration, and Remembrance Processes" in 2015. 

Francesca is interested in the ways in which digital devices and tools are reshaping cultural practices and academic disciplines (specifically art history). Her current dissertation project is born out of a digital art exhibition she is co-curating for the Taiwan National Museum of Fine Arts that will open in the fall of 2017 entitled "Hot Body, Cool Tech: Performative and Choreographed Bodies in New Media." The project won the poster competition at the PNC Annual Conference in August 2016. 

While working at the Getty Research Institute in the department of Digital Art History, she spent several years helping to develop the Getty Scholars' Workspace (TM), a set of digital tools specifically designed for conducting collaborative art historical research that was released in December of 2015. She also served as project coordinator, research assistant, and web builder for the first born digital publication to come out of the Getty Scholars' Workspace, entitled "Pietro Mellini’s Inventory in Verse, 1681: A Digital Facsimile with Translation and Commentary," and was selected to serve as a member of the HASTAC Scholars program from 2016-2018.
