LIGHTNING TALK: Panofsky Analysis for the Semantic Web (Sponsor - Synaptica)

Erwin Panofsky’s 1939 seminal work 'Studies in Iconology' describes a three-stage approach to the iconographic analysis of art images: natural – a description of the visual evidence; conventional – an interpretation of the symbols, allusions, topics and themes; and intrinsic – a wider analysis of the cultural and historical context. This lightning talk will demonstrate interactive learning applications that use semantic web technologies to model Panofsky’s analytical methodology. The talk will use examples from a number of specific pilot studies developed using the Linked Canvas software application, including studies by Bryn Mawr College in Philadelphia, and Wuhan University in China.
