LECTURE: THE MEANING AND MOVEMENT OF ASIAN GOODS IN THE BRITISH COUNTRY HOUSE
The Case of Sir Lawrence Dundas and the East India Company
With Dr. Helen Clifford
This lecture explores the movement and meaning of East India Company goods acquired by Sir Lawrence Dundas of Aske Hall, Richmond in North Yorkshire in the eighteenth century. It contributes to the debate about how far and in what ways Asian goods were incorporated into British life. Why did he acquire this exotic porcelain, lacquerware and furniture, and did it have any special significance to him? It considers the mobility of material culture and how we can map its journey across place and time.
