FREE LECTURE: Everyday Life in a Seventeenth-Century Swedish Aristocratic Household
|Everyday Life in a Seventeenth-Century Swedish Aristocratic Household : A public lecture by Associate Professor Svante Norrhem (Lund University)
A European seventeenth-century aristocratic household consisted of a variety of members. There was the noble family itself but also numerous servants of different rank, of which many lived in the same house as the family. In this lecture the audience will be given a tour through a house in Stockholm: we will 'look at' how the rooms were decorated, which items could be found in which rooms and think about what kind of sound, light, smell and taste people at the time would have experienced. We will 'meet' with the people who lived and worked in the house: who were they, what were their chores, what did they talk about and what were their future prospects?
This lecture is presented by the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions, the Institute of Advanced Studies and the Forrest Research Foundation.
