The world art history mashup project examines how the concept of world art history can be applied to design a web interface that remixes existing online art historical resources like the Heilbrunn timeline at the Metropolitan Museum of Art website. This will be a new resource for the teaching of introductory art history.

Dates – June 2012 – present
Funding – UBC Okanagan Innovations in Teaching and Learning Research Grant
Researchers – Hussein Keshani, Nathalie Hager, Nadine Bradshaw
