"Markets and Networks: An Art Historian's Journey into the Digital Landscape: by Anne Helmreich Nov. 2"Markets and Networks: An Art Historian's Journey into the Digital Landscape"

Dr. Anne Helmreich, Senior Program Office, Getty Foundation (Associate Professor of Art History, Case Western Reserve University, on leave)

Dr. Helmreich has published widely on British art, including work on garden history, landscape painting, and the history of London's art market. She is currently serving as a Senior Program Officer at the Getty Foundation, where one of her areas of specialization is the digital humanities. She will speak about her most recent scholarship, which uses social network analysis to visualize and interpret the international art market in the late 19th century. She will also offer her perspective on the present condition and future of the digital humanities, and the ways in which art historians and other humanists might integrate computational methodologies into their own work.


The lecture is part of the "Computation and the Liberal Arts Colloquium Series," funded by the Office of the Dean for Academic Affairs.
