Daen Palma Huse – Transient Visuals: Hand-Held Ephemera in Nineteenth-Century Peru

My research analyses hand-held paper ephemera and the significance and development of printed media in nineteenth-century Lima, Peru. These portable objects include photographs (such as the carte-de-visite format), promotional cards, playing cards, and single sheets of illustrations. My research question focuses on identifying the role of these ephemera in reproducing and challenging predominant norms around religion, politics, sexuality and identity formation. I investigate commissioning, production, and use of paper ephemera. In so doing, I trace transregional channels of cultural and economic exchange that played an essential part in the dissemination and use of printed objects.
