Visual and Material Culture in the Atlantic World during the Age of Revolutions, 1765-1810

My project examines the visual and material culture of the age of revolutions (1765-1810). Most historians of this period emphasize the importance of written texts in the transmission of revolutionary ideas that motivated people to action, but other ways of conveying views and information complemented print culture. Illustrations, staged performances, wax renditions of revolutionary figures, and even miniature guillotines circulated throughout the Atlantic, spreading news about events in North America, Europe, and the Caribbean. My investigation based on these materials will offer new insight into how people learned about, interpreted, promoted, and sought to profit from this revolutionary moment.
