The Colonial Object

In 2016 and 2017 the department hosted two visits from Professor Mårten Snickare (University of Stockholm). The visits were generously funded by the Department of History of Art, the Institute of Advanced Studies, and the Global Research Priority Connecting Cultures.

Professor Snickare is the leading expert on early modern art and Swedish colonialism. His presence enabled us to organise a series of events: in 2016, a research seminar, in collaboration with the Department of Theatre and Performance Studies and a seminar comparing British and Nordic colonial cultures; and in 2017, a workshop, The Colonial Object, addressing the movement of objects in Danish, British, Swedish, Dutch and Arctic contexts.
