Primary Instructor:

This seminar approaches the Hispanic Baroque from the vantage point of a number of objects that populated household spaces in early modern Spain and its colonies, such as hats, gloves, shoes, farthingales, snuff boxes, chocolate cups, telescopes, guitars, and portraits. We will explore their literal and symbolic valences with the aid of literary, legal, political, medical, and pictorial sources. For the midterm report and final essay the student is required to do a bit of window-shopping and a good amount of reading beyond the confines of the syllabus.

Class Format:

Active participation is expected. We will guide the theoretical discussion with readings from Christopher Tilley, Webb Keane et al., eds. Handbook of Material Culture (SAGE 2013)—purchase is mandatory.
