Digital Approaches to Art History and Cultural Heritage

A digital conference hosted by the University of Oxford and Durham University. 

4-5 March 2021


This conference brings together researchers, students, and professionals from art history, museology, digital humanities, geography, history, archeology, classics and computer science, who share an interest in digital approaches to the study of visual and material culture. Our goal is to explore how researchers are integrating digital tools into their research, introduce new audiences to cutting edge technologies and methodologies, and critically assesses the opportunities and challenges that such approaches present. Themes include:

Digital Approaches to Art History (Digital Visual Studies) The theme extends to digital and computational approaches to the study of visual culture. Topics include: digital imaging, computer vision, network analysis, visual Distant Reading, digital research infrastructures, data standards, institutional projects, digitisation and digital publishing projects.

Digital Approaches to Architectural and Cultural Heritage (Sites and Objects) The second topic focuses on digital approaches to capturing, displaying and studying three dimensional cultural sites and objects. This includes data capture, 3D and 4D modelling, and virtual anastylosis. It likewise treats the display, exploration and research of cultural heritage sites using new technologies, including but not limited to virtual and augmented reality.

Organised by Dr Lia Costiner (Merton College, University of Oxford) & Dr Leonardo Impett (Durham University).
