MIDDLEBURY, Vt. – Carrie Anderson, assistant professor of history of art and architecture, has been awarded a 2018-2019 Fulbright Scholar grant for teaching/research in the Netherlands, where she will be teaching a course in the fall semester at the University of Amsterdam.

The course, “Imagining Exchange in the Early Modern Global World,” will explore the ways in which images and objects played a role in visualizing and mediating diplomatic, social, and economic negotiations across cultures.

Anderson will also be researching and writing her book, Gift Exchange in the Early Modern Netherlands: Imagining Diplomacy At Home and Abroad (under contract with Amsterdam University Press), which re-contextualizes the practice of Dutch inter- and intracultural diplomatic negotiation by repositioning it within the array of texts, images, and objects that it engendered.
