C19c Brown paper-bag research seminar series

Description
The seminar series theme for 2017-18 is 'Sharing a 19th-century Object and/or Concept. Andrew Cusack and Michael White of the School of Modern Languages will present on the object: Illustrations of flowers from translation anthologies and the concept: German Naturalism. Andrew will explore the Translation Anthology in 19th-Century Europe and what forms did collections of the ‘flowers’ of the lyric poetry of nations (anthologia, Blumenlese) take and what functions did they fulfil. Starting with pictures of some translation anthologies from Germany and the UK the aim is to get answers to questions of form and function from across Europe. Michael will reflect, in contrast, on character and authority (and adultery) in German Naturalist Drama.
