Emerging Scholars

May 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

This lecture will be held at Sotheby’s Institute, 570 Lexington Avenue (51st Street).

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.
