Networks of Labour: Representing Cotton in Nineteenth-Century America.
Anna Arabindan-Kesson will examine some of the ways that representations of cotton in 19th-century American art were shaped by the creation of labour networks between different spaces, such as the relationship between the plantation and the factory.
Anna is a PhD candidate in History of Art and African-American Studies at Yale University in the USA.
