Domercq’s research project, “Popularizing the Pacific: John Webber’s Set Design for ‘Omai, or a Trip Round the World’ and his Preparatory Drawings for ‘Views in the South Seas,’” examines the representations of the peoples of the Pacific, the reception of those images in Britain, and their transformation as they came to be appropriated into popular culture.

Faulkner’s research project, “Sculpture and Spectacle: Sculpture and performance in nineteenth-century Britain,” challenges the oppositions that have been set up between the categories of sculpture and dress by examining these art forms in tandem. She will examine the Center’s collections of nineteenth-century primary material related to the history of dress.
