One thought on “Finding God in the Metadata: Distant Reading and Emblem Studies, Pt. 1

  1. K. Bender

    I fiound this post very interesting for two reasons linked to my own research:
    1° the concept of Distant Reading, which I coin ‘Distant Viewing’ when iconography is the main subject; see my article in DAH-Journal Issue 1 (June 2015)
    2° your problems with the Iconclass system; indeed, this hierarchal system is not appropriate for quantitative analysis because it does not allow for mutually exclusive retrievals of data; see my posts in my blog ‘Iconography in Art History’ of August 29, 2011 and October 11, 2011.
    All the best with your rearch!
