January 28 – Carolyn Dean: “All that Glitters: Incommensurability in Spanish American Visual Culture”

Carolyn Dean is currently working on a co-authored book project entitled Colonial Things, Cosmopolitan Thinking: Locating the Indigenous Art of Spanish America. Recognizing that the humanistic disciplines have often had an uncomfortable relationship with objects created outside Western traditions, this project seeks to illuminate how indigenous things in the colonial past have been used and invested with meaning.  She is Professor of History of Art and Visual Culture at UC Santa Cruz.
