What's next for Art History and Cultural Analytics: Features, Dimensions, Networks
In the context of the Project Digital Visual Studies, hosted by the University of Zurich, Dr. Harald Klinke will give a lecture on What’s next for Art History and Cultural Analytics, focusing on Features, Dimensions, Networks as part of a broader reflection on the impact of digital technologies for the production, archiving and retrieval of images bear for the both established and emergent visual disciplines.

The digital transformation is changing the way we conduct research in art history and visual studies. At the same time, digital technology has become ubiquitous in contemporary culture. Now we need to review past developments and the challenges ahead. In this Research Seminar, we will discuss: What steps do we need to take in research, teaching and dissemination? How can we better understand a cultural history with the help of algorithms? Why is the current pandemic situation the best opportunity to dare bold steps onto new grounds?

Harald Klinke is currently teaching Digital Art History at the LMU Munich, Germany. He studied art history, media theory, painting, philosophy and business informatics in Karlsruhe, Berlin, Göttingen and Norwich (UK), and received his PhD at the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Karlsruhe. He is Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal for Digital Art History and member of the Program Committee of the DFG Focus Program "The Digital Image".
