MINNEAPOLIS, MINN. — The Executive Editors of Panorama: Journal of the Association of Historians of American Art are pleased to announce that the Wyeth Foundation for American Art has awarded an $8,500 grant to the journal. This award will support migration to a more stable digital platform, long-term archiving to ensure journal preservation in the future, improved database indexing, and enhanced technical support. With this migration, Panorama will become the newest digital publication to be published by the University of Minnesota Libraries Publishing. Be prepared to see a refreshed visual appearance, better navigation, and an up-to-date online submission and editorial management system!
“The Wyeth Foundation was an early supporter of Panorama, and we are delighted to announce this new grant to the publication,” said Lauren Lessing, an Executive Editor for the journal. “Whereas content currently published on Panorama could disappear due to changes in technology, migration to this new platform will ensure long-term access to our publication.”
Editorial team members are currently engaged in bi-weekly meetings with the University of Minnesota Libraries Publishing staff, planning to release the new website and journal management system in time for issue 4.2.
Panorama (journalpanorama.org) is the first peer-reviewed electronic publication dedicated to American art and visual culture (broadly defined) from the colonial period to the present day. The journal is intended to provide a high-caliber international forum for disseminating original research and scholarship and for sustaining a lively engagement with intellectual developments and methodological debates in art history, visual and material cultural studies, and curatorial work. It encourages a broad range of perspectives and approaches within an interdisciplinary framework encompassing both local and global contexts. Panorama publishes work utilizing the insights of both traditional and new historical and interpretive approaches to American art.
