Event: Singing from the Margins? The Cultural Worlds of Victorian Hymns (10/23/2020)

Singing from the Margins? The Cultural Worlds of Victorian Hymns

Friday 23 October 2020, 10:00-11:15 am PST on Zoom

Please join this lively Zoom roundtable, which brings together four scholars to talk about a diverse array of Victorian hymns, including hymns by Jewish, Ethical Culture, Black, and Animal Rights communities.

Attendees will listen to a recording of each speaker’s chosen hymn and then a brief presentation about each hymn’s cultural context and importance. The short presentations will be followed by a Q&A. The speakers are

  • Alisa Clapp-Itnyre, Indiana U East (on “Bands of Mercy Hymns and Songs for Children”);
  • Diana Maltz, Southern Oregon U (on “The Fisk Jubilee Singers in Britain, 1873”);
  • Heather Marcovitch, Red Deer C (on “Felix Adler and the Golden City”); and
  • Fred Roden, U of Connecticut (on “Missionary Judaism in Israel Zangwill’s ‘All the World (Shall Come to Serve Thee)’”). 

Everyone is welcome at this free event!
