Stephanie Glickman

Stephanie Glickman studies early modern Northern European art, focusing on visual and material cultures of colonialism and global trade and the history of cartography. Prior to coming to Northwestern, she earned a BA in Studio Art, served as a Research Intern at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and held the post of Archives Assistant at the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard. Her current research investigates the artistic patronage and collecting practices of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) in the first half of the 17th Century. She is particularly interested in the painted and printed cartographic and coastal views of Asian trading posts displayed in VOC boardrooms and in the stately canal houses of VOC officers in Amsterdam, the VOC’s most important administrative center.
