Description

Stemming from the launch of the new database and enhancements of search technology and social media at the Index of Medieval Art, this roundtable wishes to address the many ways we encounter medieval iconography in the 21st century. Five participants will give short introductions on their area of specialization and participate in a discussion on how they use online resources to incorporate the study of medieval iconography into their teaching, research, and public outreach. Some questions we will consider are: What makes an online collection “teaching-friendly” and accessible for student discovery? How does social media make medieval image collections more visible? How do these platforms broaden interest in iconography and connect users to works of art? What are the aims of organizations who are working with large stores of medieval art and architecture information? Can we envisage a wider network and discussion of professional practice within this specialized area? This Roundtable will share how we create and consume information with our research, shed light on original approaches, and discover common goals. Jessica L. Savage
