Reflections on Digital Art History

CAA, the College Art Association, recently announced that they are adding a new feature to their “CAA Reviews,” the site where CAA members review books, exhibits, and projects on all areas and periods of art history. That new feature is reviewing digital art history projects!!

The first entry is an essay written by Pamela Fletcher entitled, “Reflections on Digital Art History.” In the essay, after quoting Paul Jaskot’s call for a digital art history that “[puts] the intellectual problem (rather than a method) at the center of the discussion,” Fletcher writes, “One of the goals of the new field editorship in “Digital Humanities and Art History” for is to help answer that call, bringing more visibility to digital art history projects and creating space for discussion of both their art-historical and technological achievements.”
