This event consists of a public lecture and workshop organized by Mengge Cao (PhD Candidate, Department of Art & Archaeology) and takes place in the frame work of the Princeton Art & Archaeology Graduate Symposium “Has Anything Changed? New Strategies and Adaptive Methodologies in Art History Since COVID-19”

“Everything about science is changing because of the impact of information technology”, asserted Jim Gray. Data also forms the basis of the digital transformation in the arts and humanities. Digital Art History is an interdisciplinary field that uses statistics, data analysis, machine learning, and domain knowledge to understand and analyze actual phenomena in the history of art. Prf. Klinke’s talk “From Data to Knowledge: Infrastructure for Understanding Culture” examines the term “data” and how “digital” will change the way we think about the subject of art history. It will show examples of data infrastructures, how they can be used for research projects and how to jump-start your own data-driven investigation.

The Data in Art History Workshop follows Professor Harald Klinke’s public lecture.

Led by Professor Klinke, this workshop guides participants to a deeper understanding of key concepts in data-driven approaches in art history as it relates to their research projects. The workshop consists of hands-on components and group discussions. Previous knowledge in data science is not required.

Please note that registration is required.

About the Symposium
The symposium centers on the theme of changes at a time of global crises. More specifically, it calls on participants to consider the effects of COVID-19 on scholarship in the humanities. Contributors to the symposium investigate how people and institutions must adapt to changing global circumstances, not only in the economic and political sphere, but in art, culture, and society.
