Call for Papers: Parsing the Pixelated: The Histories of Digital Art

Session at the Association of Art Historians 2014 Annual Conference, London

Although digital art precedes the creation of the world wide web in the early 1990s, it is only more recently, facilitated by affordable and widely distributed connected technology, that digital art has become firmly established as an artistic category.
