CFP: Art Histories and Digital Humanities (Montréal, 25-27 Oct, 2018)

Universities Art Association of Canada / Association d’art des universités canadiennes, University of Waterloo
October 25 – 27, 2018

Deadline: May 1, 2018

Présidence de séance / panel chairs: Édith-Anne Pageot / Dominic Hardy, Université du Québec à Montréal/ Laboratoire numérique des études en histoire de l’art du Québec

How do digital tools and modes of working impact on our ways of conceiving and writing art histories? How is the digital coming to contest conventional parameters of chronology, periodization, text/image relationships as well as the forms of knowledge that they involve? Do digital art histories encourage the integration of more inclusive approaches (docolonizing, feminist…?) We welcome proposals that engage with either the theoretical or practical concerns that underpin this panel.

Proposals can engage with conceptual issues surrounding paradigm shifts, epistemological critique and new modalities of reading (such as eye tracking) that arise with digital art histories. We also welcome case studies (and projects in the planning or pilot stage): cataloguing, adaptive technologies, image and reproduction rights… Under what conditions is the embedding of digital humanities into our research methodologies leading to a reorganization of our ways of knowing?

Submissions will be welcome via the form available on the following webpage:
