Please join us on Tuesday, March 29, 2022 at 2pmCT/3pmET for our spring meeting where we will be sharing ideas and information on DH projects and favorite OERs.

Beth Harris and Steven Zucker from Smarthistory will join us to speak about their work.
Smarthistory, the Center for Public Art History—is a not-for-profit that was founded in 2005 by Harris and Zucker, both art historians. Smarthistory is the most-visited art and cultural history website in the world, with more than 1,000 videos and 3,000 essays (contributed by a diverse group of 500 leading art historians, curators, and archaeologists). More than 30 content editors support our open peer-review process. In 2021, Smarthistory content was viewed more than 50 million times and they currently have more than 243,000 YouTube subscribers, more than almost every art museum. Smarthistory is dedicated to an inclusive art history and to reaching diverse audiences. Their content spans the globe and access is at the core of their mission. The resources are entirely free and designed to be accessible for those who are new to the study of art.
