Abstract: The digital transformation is changing the way we conduct research in art history and visual studies. At the same time, digital technology has become ubiquitous in contemporary culture. Now we need to review past developments and the challenges ahead. In this Research Seminar, we will discuss: What steps do we need to take in research, teaching and dissemination? How can we better understand a cultural history with the help of algorithms? Why is the current pandemic situation the best opportunity to dare bold steps onto new grounds?
