The daily musical activities of poet Emily Dickinson (1830–86) — home performances at the piano, collecting sheet music, and attending concerts— reveal a great deal about the cultural offerings available to a woman of her time, place, and class.
For Emily Dickinson, these experiences provided a vital and necessary backdrop for her emerging artistic persona; most importantly, her encounters with the Dickinson family servants and the New England hymn tradition encouraged artistic borrowings that had a deep and continuing influence on her personality and her writing.
I recently attended the annual MCN conference in Dallas, TX, where lots of digitally-minded museum, library, and cultural people get together to learn from and about each other. While there, I gave an Ignite talk. Ignite is a specific style of talk where there are 20 slides, and each advances automatically after 15 seconds. The format forces you to get down to the nitty-gritty of what is important in your presentation, and makes for some exciting deliveries. My talk, naturally, was about something I am really passionate about: Instagram.
