Transitioning to a Digital World: Art History, Its Research Centers, and Digital Scholarship


The Kress Foundation has a longstanding interest in art history research centers both here and abroad. For half a century the Foundation has supported the important programs of many such centers, most notably through our institutional pre-doctoral art history fellowship program. Kress also has a strong interest in the emerging digital humanities, and especially in digital art history. In order to help us all understand better the current state of digital art history and how it relates to our traditional art history research centers, we have sponsored a study of the subject. In partnership with the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University – a key node in the emerging network of the digital humanities under the inspired leadership of Daniel Cohen - we invited Diane Zorich to undertake this study. Ms. Zorich, a cultural heritage consultant with extensive experience in the digital humanities and art history fields, has now completed this study. We are pleased to share the final report, Transitioning to a Digital World: Art History, Its Research Centers, and Digital Scholarship, with all communities that take an interest in art history, the digital humanities, humanities research centers, and scholarship in the humanities in general.

Portions of this report have been published in the Journal of Digital Humanities (http://journalofdigitalhumanities.org/1-2/transitioning-to-a-digital-world-by-diane-zorich/) and will be published in a forthcoming issue of Visual Resources (http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/gvir).
