C19c Brown paper-bag research seminar series 2017-18

Description
The theme for 2017-18 is 'Sharing a 19th-century Object and/or Concept'. In this seminar, Emma Sutton of the School of English will present on an Object: A photograph of Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson playing his flageolet in Hawaii. Emma will briefly introduce some aspects of the common but under explored practice of music-making in colonial settings. Stevenson’s example illustrates some of the research questions, pleasures and difficulties in thinking about European music globally in the 19th century.
