Art History Resource at Princeton

27 Jul

Thanks to Genevra Kornbluth of Kornbluth Photography for posting this to the Mediev-L discussion group.

Princeton University has started electronically publishing the proceedings from Art History Conferences. Art History is one of those aspects of historical study which is extremely important and which I am woefully uninformed about, though I have hopes of correcting this, someday. As of now there are two conference proceedings up but I expect this will change in the future. Some proceedings are in the form of papers while others are PDF’s of powerpoint presentations, complete with images.

Here’s the link: Index of Christian Art online at Princeton University

Happy reading!

I still need to put up an Irenaeus post but am having trouble finding the 6 hours or so it’ll take me to put it together. I’m behind at work again, which I didn’t realize until this past week. But it is coming.

    But do you realize access to the Christian art is restricted? Only those paying $500 a year can see what they have (or be near a university that is subscribing).

    “Access is provided for a minimum period of twelve months from the date of subscription. Institutional access is provided at a cost of $1,500 per annum. Individual subscribers using their own non-institutional I.P. address are charged $500 per annum.”

    Best wishes, Vann Turner

    Er – OK. I posted a link to (free) digital publications of art history conference proceedings. I’m not sure what that has to do with someone charging a fee for access to a specialized archive. That’s a pretty standard practice. It would be nice if they wanted to offer access for free but they’re not under any obligation to do so IMO.
