Image in Crisis


Image in Crisis is a joint pilot project of the University of Nottingham and the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, aims to dissect the prevalent approaches to the study of images in the Greek and Roman worlds and explore the development of the discipline in the 20th and 21st century and the strengths and limitations of current methodologies. The project arises from an interest in the explosion of image-use in contemporary media and, with it, research into the differences of meaning and reception according to factors of transmission, culture, social class and gender. To achieve its aims the project will examine developments in British and German scholarship where conflicting epistemological paradigms exist for the pursuit of image studies.
