Roads, Routes and Networks: Visualizing Art Historical Information
Digital Humanities Colloquium

Space and movement have always been fundamental for art history, through concepts such as center and periphery, roads for global exchange, or the experience of travel, among others. Geographical Information Systems are transforming the traditional ways to visualize these disciplinary discourses about dissemination, innovation and evolution.

CFP: Exhibition Databases (Vienna, 14-16 Jun 18)

Vienna, June 14 – 16, 2018
Deadline: Mar 2, 2018

Workshop: Exhibition Databases

From 14th to 16th June 2018, the research project “Exhibitions of Modern European Paintings 1905-1915” will be hosting a workshop in Vienna. In this project we are building an open-access database compiling exhibitions and all accompanying information that showed modern painting, mainly in Europe, between 1905 and 1915. The objective of the database is to visualise and thus trace the chronology and geography of new art forms and “-isms” that were, at the beginning of the 20th century, often founded within and/or spread via the context of art exhibitions. The database will be accessible online by the end of 2018. The project is directed by Prof. Raphael Rosenberg at the Department of Art History of the University of Vienna, and is funded by the Austrian Science Fund. For further details please visit Continue reading “CFP: Exhibition Databases (Vienna, 14-16 Jun 18)”

CFP: Digital Humanities for Academic and Curatorial Practice (Rome, 23 – 24 May 18)

Biblioteca Angelica di Roma and American Academy in Rome
May 23 – 24, 2018

Deadline: Mar 1, 2018


The Digital Humanities have challenged all disciplines of Art History to engage with new interdisciplinary methodologies, learn new tools, and re-evaluate their role within academia. In consequence, art historians occupy a new position in relation to the object of study. Museums have been equally transformed. The possibilities of creating virtual realities for lost/inaccessible monuments poses a new relationship between viewer and object in gallery spaces. Digital Humanities interventions in museums even allow us to preserve the memory of endangered global heritage sites which cease to exist or are inaccessible (celebrated examples including the lost Great Arch of Palmyra reconstructed with a 3D printer). Curatorial practices are now trending towards a sensorial and experiential approach. Continue reading “CFP: Digital Humanities for Academic and Curatorial Practice (Rome, 23 – 24 May 18)”
