The St Andrews Photography Festival – The Stereoscope meets the Crinoline: Fashion, Technology and Comedy

October 21 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Paul Flaig will be giving an illustrated lecture on the curious, comic meeting of two mid-nineteenth century technologies: the stereoscope and the crinoline.

A Lecturer in Film Studies at St. Andrews, Flaig will explore how and why this cumbersome yet au courant woman’s petticoat became a frustrating obsession among male satirists keen to use the no less fashionable technology of the stereoscope to re-imagine the crinoline as an object of both fascination and mockery.
