As part of our fundraiser for The Felix Project, Dr Bruno Bower, Teaching Fellow in Music at the University of Surrey, and Evening Class Lecturer at Imperial College London, presented a lecture on May 4th 2020: The Fluid Worlds of Victorian Arts and Sciences.
A doctor writes about wind instruments, a lawyer researches wrestlers on behalf of an African explorer, a hostess links everyone up, and music runs in the background throughout. This is the fervid intellectual climate of the Victorian era. Bringing together a diverse range of people we wouldn’t normally think to connect (if we remember them at all), this talk will show how freely ideas could circulate in a less disciplinary age.
