Increased access to technologies such as GIS, CAD, network analysis, and digital imaging techniques can transform research on medieval art and architecture, permitting scholars to discern and analyze evidence once deemed inaccessible or obscure. But how do these approaches intersect with more traditional research methods? Planned to recognize both the 25th anniversary of the Leeds International Medieval Congress and the 100th anniversary of the Index of Medieval Art at Princeton University, these panels bring together scholars whose integration of new technologies into their work stands to transform current understanding of the medieval objects and monuments that they study.
