The 2018 Frank Davis Memorial Series invited four distinguished speakers to share research that addressed visual and material witnesses to colonialism, migration, and indigeneity. With lectures that ranged between the fifteenth century and the present, our speakers challenged conventional disciplinary, geographical and theoretical priorities, and invited reflection on the vital role that the history of art has to play in understanding local, national and global histories.
