Faculty at Home: Carrie Anderson

Tuesday, October 26, 2021 4:15 PM - 5:00 PM

Please join Associate Professor of History of Art and Architecture Carrie Anderson for a talk entitled "Between Image and Archive: Blue-and-white textiles in the Dutch global market." Of the many commodities carried on Dutch East and West India Company ships in the 17th and 18th centuries, textiles were by far the most numerous. Not only valuable trade items, textiles were also potent signifiers in an increasingly global world, where clothing played a critical role in shaping identities in colonial and European circles. Although extant examples of these textiles are scarce, painted images and archival documents hint at their social and economic importance. Drawing on research from an ongoing collaborative digital art history project, Professor Anderson’s presentation will explore the various meanings attached to blue-and-white textiles, which were frequently described in archival documents and pictured in images.
