What Can You Expect?
The Getty Research Institute in partnership with the Ayala Museum, the University of Edinburgh, and the Kunsthistorische Institut in Florenz—Max-Planck-Institut presents the Transpacific Engagements: Trade, Translation, and Visual Culture of Entangled Empires conference. This event is the last of a three-part series. Scholars will be discussing the book of the same title tackling the Transpacific trade.
The trade between Asia and the Americas from the 16th until the 19th centuries has played a major role in the development of the language and culture on both sides of the Pacific. The interaction among the cultures has produced cosmopolitan cities on both sides and has shaped the cultures and languages there even unto this day.
The event is part of The Getty Research Institute’s Untold Stories series which aims to shed light on little-known stories about the development of visual culture.
Speakers for the online event include Richard T. Chu, from the University of Massachusetts Amherst; Christina H. Lee, an associate professor and director of graduate studies in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at Princeton University; Paulina Machuca, from the Department of History at El Colegio de Michoacán; Florina H. Capistrano-Baker, who was former museum director of the Ayala Museum; and Meha Priyadarshini, a lecturer in the Department of History at the University of Edinburgh.
The online conference will be recorded and will be made available on Getty Research Institute’s Youtube channel.
