    Maya Stanfield-Mazzi, 2014-2015 Rothman Faculty Summer Fellow

    From the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries, embroiderers of liturgical textiles in Seville, Spain established models that were adopted and adapted throughout the Spanish empire. In particular, Sevillian textiles influencedecclesiastical vestments and coverings in the Viceroyalty of Peru. While Seville-style embroidery was quickly mastered and reproduced by local needle workers, Sevillian pieces also had an impact on church textiles and hangings in other mediums, including tapestries and paintings on canvas. 

    This event is part of the 2014-15 Fellowship Brown-Bag Series, which features informal talks by the Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere’s Rothman Faculty Summer Fellows, Tedder Doctoral Fellows, and Rothman Doctoral Fellows. Fellows will speak for 20-30 minutes in length about their funded work, leaving ample time for questions and discussion. The Center will provide drinks and dessert.
