Digital Art History at the Crossroads
Sebastián Lozano, Jorge
Universitat de València
Information and Communications Technologies, and more specifically online digital media, are revolutionizing the ways to produce and disseminate scientific knowledge. Humanities and social sciences -art history among them- are not alien to this process. The new challenges and opportunities have already generated a body of thinking and abundant case studies. Many of these applications have been exploratory, disconnected, and short-lived, but nonetheless very stimulating. This essay offers a report on the state of the conversation: a meeting at the crossroads, briefly outlining debates, agreements and disagreements, (dis)continuities with the broader framework of the discipline, and future perspectives.
