Faculty Activities: Nancy Um at the Getty Center

This Saturday, Associate Professor Nancy Um will present a paper at Objects in Motion in the Early Modern World, a symposium cosponsored by the Getty Research Institute and the USC-Huntington Early Modern Studies Institute that examines the circulation of objects across regions and cultures in the early modern period (1500–1800), addressing the ways in which mobility led to new meanings, uses, and interpretations. Her paper is titled “Chairs, Writing Tables, and Chests: On the Postures of Commercial Documentation in the Early Modern Indian Ocean.”
