On May 2, at the Victorian Society New York’s annual Emerging Scholars event, young historians will shed light on little-appreciated aspects of 19th-century culture. During the free lectures (6 to 8 pm with reception, Sotheby’s Institute of Art, 570 Lexington Avenue at 51st Street), Christine Garnier will explore symbolism hidden in a mining tycoon’s Tiffany silver dinnerware; Ayaka Sano will examine surprising connections between men’s detachable shirt collars and anti-Chinese bigotry; and Elizabeth Muir will reveal her finds about New York brothel furniture.
