Gucci, Polimoda Offer Scholarship to Determined Dutch Student

HAPPY ENDING: Determination can definitely pay off.
Florence-based fashion school Polimoda and Gucci are offering a scholarship to Dutch student Elisa van Barneveld, who in October launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise the money to enroll in Polimoda’s master in fashion retail and management developed in collaboration with the luxury fashion house.
Generating some buzz around her crowdfunding initiative through social media and digital communication, van Barneveld, who was turned down for a loan by her bank, succeeded in collecting 10,000 euros in three months, a sum equivalent to almost half of the tuition fee.
When Polimoda and Gucci learned about the student and her desire to attend the program, they interviewed her and decided to help her raise the total amount required to enroll.

Donatella Versace Sets Scholarship for Central Saint Martins Students

REMEMBERING GIANNI: Donatella Versace is throwing her support — once again — behind young London talent in an important anniversary year for the brand.
Versace, who is in London for the Versus show on Sunday, has unveiled the Gianni Versace Scholarship, which aims to provide a “comprehensive financial support package” for a student starting the MA Fashion Course at Central Saint Martins this fall.
“Central Saint Martins educates and trains some of the best talents in the world of fashion. Many of their alumni have come to work with me over the years,” Versace said.
“I have always been a great advocate of supporting and listening to young talent, and it is with great pleasure that we are funding a yearly scholarship at the college as a tribute to my brother Gianni. He was a visionary designer, and in his memory we wanted to nurture the creators of tomorrow.”
The scholarship marks the 20-year anniversary of Gianni Versace’s murder in Miami, after which Donatella took control of the design studio.
Over the years, many graduates of Central Saint Martins have worked on the various Versace collections, including Christopher Kane and Louise Goldin. Michael Halpern, who graduated with an MA in women’s wear from CSM last

British Fashion Council Names MA Scholarship Winners

AN EDUCATION: The British Fashion Council on Thursday named the three designers who have won MA scholarships for 2015 via its British Fashion Council Education Foundation.
They are Benny Andaloo, a BA graduate from Central Saint Martins, who will study the MA Fashion Men’s Wear course at CSM; Gabriella Sardena, a BA graduate from Manchester School of Art, who will study the MA Fashion Textiles course at CSM; and Shaun Harris, a BA graduate of Kingston University, who will study for an MA in Fashion Women’s Wear at the Royal College of Art.

The scholarship initiative is also supported by the British government with its employer ownership funding program, which allows employers to invest in the skills of a future work force.
Past recipients of the scholarships include Erdem Moralioglu, who won in 2002, and Aitor Throup, who won in 2004.

A New Republic of Letters: Memory and Scholarship in the Age of Digital Reproduction

A New Republic of Letters: Memory and Scholarship in the Age of Digital Reproduction

A manifesto for the humanities in the digital age, A New Republic of Letters” argues that the history of texts, together with the methods by which they are preserved and made available for interpretation, are the overriding subjects of humanist study in the twenty-first century. Theory and philosophy, which have grounded the humanities for decades, no longer suffice as an intellectual framework. Jerome McGann proposes we look instead to philology–a discipline which has been out of fashion for many decades but which models the concerns of digital humanities with surprising fidelity. For centuries, books have been the best way to preserve and transmit knowledge. But as libraries and museums digitize their archives and readers abandon paperbacks for tablet computers, digital media are replacing books as the repository of cultural memory. While both the mission of the humanities and its traditional modes of scholarship and critical study are the same, the digital environment is driving disciplines to work with new tools that require major, and often very difficult, institutional changes. Now more than ever, scholars need to recover the theory and method of philological investigation if the humanities are to meet their perennial commitments. Textual and editorial scholarship, often marginalized as a narrowly technical domain, should be made a priority of humanists’ attention.
