Life Downstairs: British Servant Culture in Fact, Fiction and Film

Life Downstairs: British Servant Culture in Fact, Fiction and Film

Join DPL and the New Hampshire Humanities Council to welcome Ann McClellan to present Life Downstairs: British Servant Culture in Fact, Fiction and Film via zoom. 

While servant narratives have been popular for centuries, there seems to be a resurging interest in these stories in recent decades. Many contemporary British and North American writers, filmmakers, and television executives have turned to master/servant relationships as their subject matter. Films like The Remains of the Day and Gosford Park garnered numerous Oscar nominations and substantial box office profits. PBS created such classics as Upstairs, Downstairs and Manor House, as well as the phenomenally successful Downton Abbey. Even mainstream American television has piloted its own versions of the British servant in shows as wide-ranging as The Fresh Prince of Bel Air to reality TV's Supernanny. Join Ann McClellan as she explores the history behind the rise and fall of British servants and why Americans are so fascinated by their stories on page and screen.

About the presenter: Ann McClellan is professor of English and Associate Provost at Plymouth State University where she teaches 19th and 20th century British literature. She is the author of How British Women Writers Transformed the Campus Novel (2012), Sherlock's World: Fanfiction and the Reimagining of BBC's Sherlock (2018), and several articles on cultural topics ranging from servants on screen to social media, fan fiction, and Sherlock Holmes. She is currently writing a new monograph on race and Sherlock Holmes adaptations.

This program is free and open to all, hosted by Durham Public Library and sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council.

Wit and Wisdom: Humor in 19th Century New England

Wit and Wisdom: Humor in 19th Century New England

Join DPL and the New Hampshire Humanities Council to welcome Jo Radner to present Wit and Wisdom: Humor in 19th Century New England. Whatever did New Englanders do on long winter evenings before cable, satellite and the internet? In the decades before and after the Civil War, our rural ancestors used to create neighborhood events to improve their minds. Community members male and female would compose and read aloud homegrown, handwritten literary "newspapers" full of keen verbal wit. Sometimes serious, sometimes sentimental but mostly very funny, these "newspapers" were common in villages across Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont and revealed the hopes, fears, humor and surprisingly daring behavior of our forebears. Jo Radner shares excerpts from her forthcoming book about hundreds of these "newspapers" and provides examples from villages in your region.

About the presenter: Jo Radner received her PhD from Harvard University. Before returning to her family home in western Maine as a freelance storyteller and oral historian, Radner spent 31 years as a professor at American University in Washington, DC. There she taught literature, folklore, women's studies, American studies, Celtic studies, and storytelling. She has published books and articles in all those fields, and is now writing a book titled Performing the Paper: Rural Self-Improvement in Northern New England, about a 19th-century village tradition of creating and performing handwritten literary newspapers. Radner is a past president of the American Folklore Society and the National Storytelling Network.

(Not So) Elementary, My Dear Watson: The Popularity of Sherlock Holmes

(Not So) Elementary, My Dear Watson: The Popularity of Sherlock Holmes

Join DPL and the NH Humanities Council to welcome Ann McClellan to our adult virtual programming! The recent spate of Sherlock Holmes movies, television shows, and literary adaptations indicate the Great Detective is alive and well in the 21st century. Holmes is the most portrayed literary character of all time, with over 230 film versions alone in several different languages. Over the past century, Sherlockians created societies like the Baker Street Irregulars, wrote articles sussing out the "sources" of Doyle's works, and, most recently, developed an entire online world of Holmesian fan fiction. Sherlock Holmes is now a multi-million dollar industry. Why is Sherlock Holmes so popular? Ann McClellan's presentation explores the origins of Arthur Conan Doyle's famous detective and tracks his incarnations in literature, film, advertising, and modern media in order to crack the case of the most popular detective.

About the presenter: Ann McClellan is professor of English and Associate Provost at Plymouth State University where she teaches 19th and 20th century British literature. She is the author of How British Women Writers Transformed the Campus Novel (2012), Sherlock's World: Fanfiction and the Reimagining of BBC's Sherlock (2018), and several articles on cultural topics ranging from servants on screen to social media, fan fiction, and Sherlock Holmes. She is currently writing a new monograph on race and Sherlock Holmes adaptations.

This program is free and open to all.

African American Soldiers and Sailors of New Hampshire During the American Revolution

African American Soldiers and Sailors of New Hampshire During the American Revolution

In observance of African American History Month, please join DPL and the New Hampshire Humanities Council to welcome Glenn Knoblock to present African American Soldiers and Sailors of New Hampshire During the American Revolution via zoom. One of the most interesting aspects of the American Revolution is the role played by African Americans in the fight for independence. Both free African Americans and those that were enslaved were key in manning state militias and Continental Army units, as well as serving on the high seas in the Navy and on privately armed ships. Indeed, their service to the colonies was crucial in a conflict that lasted nearly seven years. Prohibited from serving in military units and largely considered "undesirable elements," how is it that these African-American soldiers came to fight for the cause of liberty, even when their own personal liberty was not guaranteed? Glenn Knoblock examines the history of African-American soldiers' service during the war, including how and why they enlisted, their interaction with white soldiers, service on the battlefields, how they were perceived by the enemy and the officers under whom they served, and their treatment after the war. 

About the presenter: Glenn Knoblock is an independent scholar and author of fifteen books and over 100 articles. He is also the author and historian on projects relating to Northern New England bridges, New Hampshire cemeteries, and brewing history, and African-American military history. Knoblock has served as the main military contributor to Harvard and Oxford University's landmark African-American Biography Project. He holds a BA in History from Bowling Green State University.

This program is free, open to all and sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council.

Fierce Females: Women in Art

Fierce Females: Women in Art

In observance of Women's History Month, join DPL Adult Services and the New Hampshire Humanities Council to welcome Jane Oneail to present Fierce Females: Women in Art via zoom.  

Women have long been the subject of art, often depicted as nothing more than objects of desire. How do images of women change when women become the creators? This program examines the history of women in art in brief and then explores the lives, careers and works of several major women artists from the Renaissance to the twentieth century. Artemisia Gentileschi, Mary Cassatt, and Frida Kahlo are some of the artists discussed in this program.

About the presenter: Jane Oneail is an independent scholar and holds a master's in Art History from Boston University and a master's in Art in Education from Harvard University. Jane is a New Hampshire native and has worked at some of the state's most esteemed cultural institutions, including the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen, where she served as Executive Director, and the Currier Museum of Art, where she held the role of Senior Educator. Jane has also taught at the college level for more than a decade, most recently at the NH Institute of Art.

This program is free and open to all, hosted by the Durham Public Library and sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council.

Strange Terrain: How Not to Get Poetry and Let it Get You Instead

Strange Terrain: How Not to Get Poetry and Let it Get You Instead

In observance of National Poetry Month, please join DPL to welcome former New Hampshire State Poet Laureate, Alice B. Fogel presenting Strange Terrain: How Not to “Get” Poetry and Let it Get You Instead. Alice Fogel takes you through seven simple steps, and one hard one, toward understanding and appreciating more elements of poetry than you ever thought you could. In the end you'll see that you already knew them all along. This workshop is your quick, self-help program for "getting" poems. Fogel helps you develop your own confident relationship with poetry's shapes, words, images, sounds, emotions, mysteries, and more.

About the presenter: Alice B. Fogel has been the New Hampshire State Poet Laureate. Her poetry collections include Interval: Poems Based on Bach's "Goldberg Variations," which won the Nicholas Schaffner Award for Music in Literature, and Be That Empty, a national poetry bestseller, among others, and she is also the author of Strange Terrain, a reader's and teacher's guide to appreciating poetry without necessarily "getting" it, based on her Humanities To Go program. Nominated for Best of the Web and eight times for the Pushcart Prize, Fogel's poems have appeared in many journals and anthologies, including Best American Poetry. She has received a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, among other awards.

This program is free and open to all, hosted by the Durham Public Library and sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council.
