Artworks + Networks: Materializing Connectivity in Art Historical Research

With the revision of canonical accounts of art history and the rise of 
digital humanities over the past two decades, networks have emerged as 
useful tools for visualizing the redistribution of dominant art 
historical narratives. Networks, however, represent nodes and edges, at 
times obscuring the social realities in between, and art historical 
scholarship on them has been critiqued for its lack of attention to art 
objects themselves. This session therefore asks: How can the concepts of 
network science be applied to art historical research? What new 
questions might be drawn from an exploration of social networks of the 
past? And how might artistic production itself be an instrumental 
component of, or even a vehicle for, networked action? We aim to 
consider the ways and means that network science might be used as a 
methodological tool of inquiry within the discipline of art history, and 
as a space to consider how networks have been understood historically 
both by artists and art historians. This session calls for short paper 
presentations, to be followed by a productive discussion/debate amongst 
presenters and attendees about the ramifications of social network 
science within art historical discourse. All disciplines, periods, and 
perspectives are encouraged to submit proposals.

Session Chairs: Miriam Kienle, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign; 
Claire Kovacs, Canisius College; Lauren Applebaum, University of 
Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.

Please use SECAC's online form and submit your abstract and CV no later
