This one-day symposium will examine how digital tools prompt new approaches to teaching and research in art and architectural history, as well as in archaeology and visual studies. Databases, mapping, modeling, animations, and websites are also transforming the ways in which scholars and museums can communicate information to the public. Above all, digital tools stimulate entirely new types of research questions on the production and dissemination of works of art and material culture, the construction of buildings and cities, and issues of process and change over time.

The symposium provides an opportunity for the Wired! Group to reflect on its mission and to highlight the important digital work that is underway in many universities and museums across the country. We will hear about a variety of approaches to digital scholarship across a range of artistic periods and geographic areas in teaching, research, and museum displays from ancient through modern and in western and non-western art.
