Technology, New Media, and Medieval Art History: A Graduate Student Perspective

International Congress of Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo

Technology, New Media, and Medieval Art History:

A Graduate Student Perspective

The Student Committee of the International Center for Medieval Art is a
group that seeks to give a voice to all students in medieval art
history. This
year we are sponsoring a session that focuses on new uses of technology to
further art historical scholarship. What are the pressing technological
issues that face burgeoning medieval art historians when microfilm, slide
production, and slide libraries are fast becoming relics in our own time?
What technologies from outside the field are presently being adapted to the
use of art historians? And how are we, as graduate students in the
twenty-first century, participating in this latest technological revolution,
and incorporating technology into our research, writing, and teaching? We
are seeking presenters that utilize the Internet, digital media, and other
software technology in their research and teaching to change the way we
approach medieval art and architecture.

As a committee that addresses student concerns, we invite papers that
utilize progressive scholarship, and we welcome contributions with
interdisciplinary approaches. We especially encourage scholars early in
their careers to submit papers on the use of new technologies to study
medieval monuments of any period and medium. E-mail a brief CV and an
abstract of no more than 300 words by 15 September 2009 to Lynley Anne
