Exhition: Sugar and the Visual Imagination in the Atlantic World, c. 1600-1860, John Carter Brown Library of Brown University, guest curator, K. Dian Kriz, professor emeritus of the History of Art and Architecture Department

This exhibition focuses on the visual imagery of sugar in the Americas, examining how this sweet, powerful, and often destructive commodity was depicted in books, single sheet prints, and maps that are in the collection of the John Carter Brown Library.  For more information, and online view of the exhibition go to:

Conference:  Beyond Sweetness: New Histories of Sugar in the Early Atlantic World, John Carter Brown Library
October 24-27, 2013 

This international conference was inspired by the exhibition, “Sugar and the Visual Imagination in the Atlantic World.”It will evaluate the current state of scholarship on sugar, as well as move beyond it by considering alternative consumer cultures and economies. Given its importance, sugar as a topic still pervades scholarship on the Americas and has been treated in many recent works about the Caribbean, Brazil, and other regions. This conference thus will serve as an occasion for the assessment of new directions in the study of sugar.
