NEW PERSPECTIVES IN ICONOLOGY

Visual Studies and Anthropology

by: Barbara Baert

New Perspectives in Iconology is the first book in the new series Iconologies, founded by the Iconology Research Group (www.iconologyresearchgroup.org).

In this book the authors investigate how iconology as a field and method, which originated within art history, relates to recent developments in the Humanities such as Anthropology and Visual Studies. The main questions are: How has iconology evolved in the past decennia, could it incorporate Anthropology and Visual Studies towards a new science of images? How have new disciplines profited from iconology and how can they in turn inspire and/or reinvent iconology? These questions are addressed within a wide historical and geographical scope, as we regard the tracing of pictorial meaning throughout time and space an essential characteristic of iconology.

The selected specialists of this volume all have a specific involvement with the new tendencies in iconology today. The authors share their lectures, ideas, methods, old and current research for one common goal: the further study and exploration of the making, the meaning and the migration of images in art history.
