Experiencing the Salon Working Group Meeting


From: Monday, November 18, 2019, 02:30pm

To: Monday, November 18, 2019, 04:30pm

The working group will hold four to six meetings each semester that address critical questions such as: How did the multiple registers of the sensual environment of the salon—sight, hearing, taste, smell, and even touch—shape the salon experience? How can a multidimensional depiction of the sensual environment of the salon enrich scholars’ understanding of the interchange of ideas in this context? What is the relationship between salon practices and the texts that seem to codify them, such as letters, drawings, and musical scores? How does the experience of the salon differ across eras and cultures?
