With its genesis in digital media and presentation technologies to the use of digital methods to broaden the scope of research and analysis, the practice of digital art history is as expansive as the imaginations of its practioners. From coursework with our faculty that includes significant digital art history components to the recently established Digital Art History Lab, the Department of Art History and Archaeology is committed helping our students develop 21st-century skillsets by providing opportunities to explore the intersection between art history and the possibilities provided by technology.
Digital Art History Lab (DAHL)
The Department is pleased to announce the Visual Resources Center is now the Digital Art History Lab (DAHL)! Under the leadership of Betha Whitlow, Curator of Visual Resources + Lecturer in digital art history, the DAHL's mission is to ensure that faculty and particularly students have full support to practice art history in our digital world, from continuing to promote “digitized” art history to forwarding more advanced practices that use digital tools to ask and answer new research questions. The DAHL can provide basic training and consultations to help you transform your ideas (no matter how developed!) into action, including those involving data creation, digital imaging, maps, timelines, audio (podcasts), video (short films), websites, visualizations, animations, and more.
