April 18: Carl Robert Keyes lecture on advertising, 18th-century lit. magazines

0

Posted by Shalyn Hopley | Posted in Campus News & Events | Posted on 15-04-2014

“Disperse thousands … in every direction or point of the compass…”

Advertisements, Marketing Networks, and Late Eighteenth-Century Literary Magazines presented by Carl Robert Keyes

  • Friday, April 18; 3 p.m.
  • Fuller Music Room (4th floor, Goddard Library)

Advertisements printed on the wrappers that accompanied magazines in the late 18th century transformed  those periodicals devoted to poetry and historical and literary essays into utilitarian instruments for stimulating consumer demand for a variety of goods and services, thereby expanding commercial markets and maximizing profits for the publishers and advertisers.

Carl Robert Keyes is Assistant Professor of History at Assumption College. He is currently revising Early American Advertising:  Marketing and Consumer Culture in Eighteenth-Century America.  He is the author of “A Revolution in Advertising: ‘Buy American’ Campaigns in the Late Eighteenth Century,” included in a three-volume anthology of essays exploring the history of advertising in America. His “History Prints, Newspaper Advertisement, and Cultivating Citizen Consumers:  Patriotism and Partisanship in Marketing Campaigns in the Era of the Revolution” will appear in the Fall 2014 issue of American Periodicals, the journal of the Research Society for American Periodicals.

  • Saturday, April 19 at 7:30 p.m.
  • Razzo Hall, Traina Center for the Arts

The Clark Sinfonia was founded in the spring of 2003 and is a string ensemble with the occasional addition of wind, brass, and timpani. Its musical foundations are the excellent repertoire available for strings, along with the symphonic repertoire of Haydn and Mozart. To date the group’s repertoire list includes more than major works, most notably Shostakovitch’s Chamber Symphony and Haydn’s Symphony no. 104, the “London.” The group runs without a conductor to allow the musicians greater freedom and responsibility.

Saturday’s program will include traditional Irish Jigs, music by Shostakovitch and more!

Free and Open to the public.  For more information, call 508-793-7356  or email Clark Arts.
