The School of Liberal Arts Sabbatical Speaker Series continues Friday, Feb. 24, 2012, with a discussion of Bric-A-Brac.
Anthropology Professor Paul Mullins will present "Difference, Desire, and Small Things: The Archaeology of Victorian Bric-a-Brac" from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m., Feb. 24, in Room 268, Campus Center, 420 University Blvd.
Parlors throughout the 19th-century Atlantic World were flooded with modest decorative goods like figurines, and a vast range of American and British homes were filled with ceramic animals, famous people, and artistic motifs. This Sabbatical presentation examines these goods from a range of households often considered "outside" consumer society.
