Kelly Cannon: After Digitalization: Using Digital Humanities to Explore Art History
The next guest of TechTea is Kelly Cannon who is a Fulbright Fellow researching early twentieth century Hungarian photographers. She was formerly the Cataloguer and Assistant Digital Content Strategist of Object:Photo (moma.org/objectphoto), a digital research platform for the exploration of modern photography, published by the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
This conversation will address the digital humanities as an emerging method for art historical research. Recent humanities web platforms inspire new questions and use innovative digital tools to address longstanding academic inquiries. How can these tools be most useful to museums, universities, and archives, along with their audiences? How can digital tools similarly be applied to the study of contemporary art?
