Dr. John Romey is a specialist in music and culture of early modern France and colonial Peru. His current book project, entitled “The Tools of Gods and Beggars: Song As Cultural Mediator in Early Modern Paris,” considers the interplay between popular and elite song traditions in early modern Paris and how song functioned as a cultural mediator among social ranks. His talk will feature a performance on a hurdy-gurdy and will invite the audience to sing along to a seventeenth-century street song.

The talk will be followed by a reception in the French Room (477 Manoogian) at 6pm.
