On June 2–3, leading and emerging historians of the Atlantic slave trade will gather for a conference at The Huntington titled “Slave Trading in the Spanish and British Atlantic Worlds” in order to present research on the trafficking of African people in these two imperial spheres.
Each year, The Huntington hosts roughly 150 long- and short-term research fellows, selected through a competitive, peer-review process that provides nearly $2 million in awards.
A new exhibition will provide visitors with the opportunity to gain insight into early art education in China through painting manuals originally published in the 17th and 18th centuries.
When Nekketsu Takei (1879–1961) traveled by steamship to Honolulu in late 1903, he was one of hundreds of migrants on board escaping economic hardships in rural Japan for employment opportunities in Hawaiʻi. Three years later he produced maps of Hawaiʻi to attract Japanese immigrants as well as to help newcomers familiarize themselves with the islands. The Huntington holds two of Takei’s maps as part of its Pacific Rim collections.
