Call for Participation: scholar advisory group for Pharos Pilot project

Pharos, the international consortium of photo archives, is seeking scholars to advise on a pilot project focused on bringing together the digitized photo archives of five Pharos member institutions: the Frick Art Reference Library (New York, USA); I Tatti, the Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies (Florence, Italy); Fondazione Federico Zeri (Bologna, Italy); Bibliotheca Hertziana – Max Planck Institute for Art History (Rome, Italy); and Deutsches Dokumentationszentrum für Kunstgeschichte – Bildarchiv Foto Marburg (Marburg, Germany). 
The details of the call and more information about Pharos can be found on the consortium’s website:
We are particularly interested in scholars who can help expand the use of photo archives, using them to tell more global, more inclusive histories of art. We are also interested in scholars who might help us envision innovative, computational methods for analyzing images at scale. Applications are due September 1.
