Τhis paper aims to map and analyze the intellectual framework of research in Greek doctoral dissertations on painting and its reflection on the international research canvas. By using fine art text analytics and social networks analysis techniques, this study builds the internal and external structure and research relationships of doctoral theses in the Greek National Archive of PhD Theses. Data and metadata were obtained from 156 dissertations available for electronic database searching, covering the period 1986 to 2019 across all disciplines with only criterion the occurrence of the term “painting” in their title, abstract or keywords section. The theses were analyzed to determine growth trends, institutional output, disciplinary context, thematical coverage, interdisciplinarity, and variations among University departments. Results indicate that the growth in the number of doctoral theses on painting, following international trends, rapidly increased after 2003, mainly generated from History and Archaeology departments focusing on 17th to 20th century frescoes and iconography. STEM related disciplines contributed more than anticipated, while no theses from the fields of Fine Art Entrepreneurship, Economics, and Finance were awarded.

Part of the data files used in Koutsoupias, Ν. & Boutsiouki, S. (2017). Exploring European Cultural Goods Trade: A Multidimensional Perspective, Proceedings: ICIB17 (to appear).
The increasing interest in culture and related industries has emerged as part of a new approach as regards national and regional development. Cultural and creative industries are considered to incorporate strong dynamics and potential for participatory and inclusive development. Therefore, the promotion of effective policies fostering the development and growth of the particular industries has social and economic benefits for broad groups of stakeholders. The trade of cultural goods is one of the dimensions of this debate. This paper demonstrates the use of Multidimensional Data Analysis methods in revealing latent groups of European countries trading cultural goods over a period of fourteen years (2002-2015). The methods of Multiple Correspondence Analysis (MCA) and Hierarchical Cluster Analysis (HC) are applied on a multivariate matrix that takes into account not only imports and exports of such goods, but in a supplementary way, basic economic and educational variables, in order to detect and explore relationships among them. Furthermore, cluster analysis on MCA results is used to identify all groups of country-years sharing similar characteristics. pp124-138.
