CWRU Art History and Physics Win 2022 Ignite Presentation

Congratulations to Clara Pinchbeck and Mahamad Salah Mahmoud who won the 2022 Ignite Presentation hosted by CWRU’s College of Arts and Sciences Expanding Horizons Initiative (EHI)! The pair were awarded funds for future research after presenting results from the multi-year Digital Art History Collaboration between the Department of Art History and Art, Department of Physics, Department of Engineering, and the Cleveland Institute of Art. The Collaboration was started by two doctoral students in 2019 and has grown to over ten members, including Physics Professor Ken Singer and Art History Professor Elizabeth Bolman. Clara and Mahamad used an interdisciplinary approach to demonstrate how science and technology help to solve real-world art historical problems!
