Jun Nakamura is an external PhD candidate and the 2018-2020 Kress Foundation Institutional Fellow with Leiden University Centre for the Arts in Society (LUCAS). He works on seventeenth-century Dutch topics and the history of printmaking. His dissertation explores how visual rhetorics of print were manipulated, appropriated, and subverted in the Netherlands in the long seventeenth-century in order to get at meanings and implications of print that hinge on its particular aesthetic qualities. His other research interests include transoceanic trade and travel, approaches to the depiction of space, and early modern science and technology. He is also a practicing artist and printmaker.
