The Priority Program “The Digital Image,” funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), combines projects from a multiperspectival point of view and addresses the central role that the image plays in the process of the digitization of knowledge in theory and practice. The research cluster consists of 12 projects from various disciplines, including computer science, archaeology, European and Asian art history, media studies and ethnology. By placing the subject matter within a broader methodological and cultural horizon, the cluster aims to bridge possible gaps between different cultures.
In this special issue, all 12 projects introduce – in brief presentations – their goals and research questions. This provides an overview of the various approaches to, and research on, the overarching topic of the Digital Image. It serves as a starting point for further investigations and underlines the collective approach, bringing together researchers and disciplines.
