As a result of the initial Project Andvari workshop, the project team determined that a structured iconographic controlled vocabulary is needed to help promote access and organization. Therefore, the project staff has arranged for a two-day iconography workshop in which attendees will discuss the desired features of our proposed vocabulary and help in establishing the foundational structure and key terms necessary to arrange our identified object sets.
The following readings will help to prepare workshop participants to discuss controlled vocabularies within the specific context of visual art and iconographic representations. If you feel that there are additional readings that are pertinent to our workshop, please feel free to add them to the comments section of this page.
