4:00 pm | 2/22/2021 | Live on Zoom
Dr. Maya Stanfield-Mazzi, Associate Professor School of Art + Art History, University of Florida
The Early Modern Mobilities & Materialities working group is proud to announce the first of our events for this semester! Please join us on Monday, February 22nd at 4 PM, PST, for a lecture by Professor Maya Stanfield-Mazzi (from the University of Florida) on material from her new book, Clothing the New World Church: Liturgical Textiles of Spanish America, 1520-1820. The lecture will be followed by a Q&A. All are welcome! Do mark your calendars with the event information below.
Maya Stanfield-Mazzi will give a preview of her new book, Clothing the New World Church: Liturgical Textiles of Spanish America, 1520–1820. She will briefly introduce the material features of the main textile types the book covers: woven silk, embroidery, featherwork, tapestry, painted cotton, and cotton lace. She will then illustrate two cases in which patterns and imagery migrated across textile types, speaking thus to the wider field of fine textiles and ways in which the Old and New Worlds became interconnected during the early modern period.
