This series of masterclasses encourages creative dialogue between early-career and established scholars. We have invited historians of art and culture who have challenged established classifications, chronologies and geographies. Discussing texts and objects from their research, they will share experiences of investigating the Iberian and Latin American past, reflect on their academic journeys, and provide both intellectual and practical advice.
In particular, we hope to consider how neglected histories can be brought to the surface, even when such explorations are hindered by structural factors, namely the classification of documents in archives, the obstacles or prohibitions placed on the study of certain materials, and the protection of some categories of visual, textual and material artefacts at the expense of others.
Our inaugural event, ‘Reception and Reproduction’, will take place on 26 June 2020, 4–5pm on Zoom. We are very excited to welcome Dr Hilary Macartney, Project Director of The Stirling Maxwell Research Project, University of Glasgow. Please click here to join (please note you will be asked to register and download Zoom, so we recommend you sign up in advance). You can use your PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone or Android device.
