        Subject: ESF (Humanities Unit): Art History; research conferences

Two announcements:

1. The Networked Humanities: Art History in the Web conference is now up and running

The aim of this conference is to bring together art historians and other researchers (including digital humanists) in order to investigate the intersection between the web and collaborative research processes, via an examination of electronic media-based cooperative models in the history of art and beyond. With contributions spanning from
art history (and digital art) to philosophy and cultural studies, from psychology and sociology of knowledge to computer graphics, from semiotics to curatorial practices it will offer a unique forum for the representation of both diversified and complementary approaches to the topic of Networked humanities.

Closing date for applications/ papers: 18th of July, 2010.
