Title: The Study of Visual Culture in the Age of Zeroes and Ones
Date & Time: Thursday 02/12/2015, 12:30pm – 2:00pm
Location: Beekman Parlor, 2nd Floor
The tele-electronic digital world is transforming the ways we teach, the types of research we pursue, the subjects we teach about, the methodologies we employ, as well as how we archive and preserve. Institutional leverage and monetary support is sure to create disruption and change for academics. What does this mean for scholars and professionals and how is it going to affect our disciplines? The College Art Association published their Samuel Kress Foundation study on Changing Research in Art History in their May 7th newsletter which highlighted the need for academics of visual culture to respond to the evolving needs of the discipline. We seek to engage and theorize the ways the study of art history and visual culture are changing and the ways scholars are adapting and innovating to meet these new challenges and opportunities.
This roundtable discussion will be co-chaired by Lev Manovich and Walter Meyer and will feature the presentations of Michael Masucci & Bridget Goodebody.
