      Art History Masterclass - Dr Cristina González (Oklahoma State University)

      As part of the ‘Foreign Bodies’ research project, Dr Cristina González (Oklahoma State University) will be delivering a masterclass: ‘Itinerant Images in Spanish America: Art, Object, and Devotion in a Trans-Atlantic/Pacific World’

      The class probes the circulation of people, ideas and objects in the early modern Spanish world. While focusing on circuits of exchange, discussion will move beyond “origins” and a model-copy dichotomy in order to investigate refractive networks that emphasize materiality, context, and performance as sources for new meanings within the Spanish viceroyalties. Cases in which images gain currency through repetition, adaptation, and travel are especially relevant. We also explore the transformative potential of exotic materials, particularly with regards to devotional objects. How do early modern encounters impact the sacred in its material forms?
