Annual Armand Hammer Art History Lecture
New digital tools are transforming the ways in which we do research and teach. Caroline Bruzelius (Anne Murnick Cogan Professor of Art and Art History) shares how at Duke University, the Wired! group has been experimenting with integrating technologies into traditional courses. They have also created a lab running six or seven concurrent research projects with teams of graduate and undergraduate students working side by side. The projects range from a GIS database that gathers the evidence from two centuries of archaeology in Athens to interactive displays for medieval works of art in our university museum. Students take an active role in designing the projects and learning appropriate software for execution.
