Dear Colleagues,

 

I am happy to share with you the news that the new volume of Ars Orientalis (vol. 48) with the theme “The Language of Art History” is now available to read at https://www.freersackler.si.edu/research/ars-orientalis/volume-48/.

 

Guest edited by Sugata Ray, this volume foregrounds the concepts of “translations,” “terminologies,” and “global art history.” The seven articles in the volume all were developed from papers presented at the Thirty-fourth World Congress of Art History in Beijing, hosted by the Chinese committee of the Comité International d’Histoire de l’Art (CIHA). They address key issues with methodological urgency, such as the development of representational techniques across cultures, the relationships between real spaces and spaces of representation, the adaptations of architectural idioms within the context of colonialism and its legacy, and the notion of objecthood in the digital age. In doing so, the authors test the terms and methods for a global art history and explore diverse modes of being in translation.

 

Digital Ars Orientalis 48 is offered open access and print version of the journal is available for purchase. As with the previous volumes, Ars Orientalis 48 includes Digital Initiatives, a column that explores digital tools, resources, publications, and learning opportunities in art history and related fields, with a special focus on topics relevant to this volume.

 

We very much hope that you enjoy reading our new volume.

 

With best wishes,

Zeynep
