An international group of scholars will examine the circulation of objects across regions and cultures in the early modern period (1500-1800), addressing the ways in which mobility led to new meanings, uses, and interpretations. Break-out sessions will invite the audience to consider these questions during an examination of objects from the Getty's collections. A closing roundtable will provide an opportunity to discuss the methodological and theoretical potential of this line of inquiry for the study and teaching of art history.
Graduate students writing dissertations on related subjects can apply for a limited number of grants to defray the cost of travel to the conference. To request an application, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be due February 1, 2013.
Admission to this event is free. Reservations are required and can be made online. Please visit the Getty Calendar (www.getty.edu/visit/calendar/) in February 2013 to secure your spot.
