Registration – London Book Club
The London Global Gateway, along with five partners from across the University of Notre Dame campus, has launched the London Book Club series “London in Song,” an interactive, educational enrichment program featuring Notre Dame’s expert faculty.
As one of the central nodes of the global entertainment industry, London has a long and complex relationship to song, and much can be learned about the cultural life of the city through its music. “London in Song” examines four songs in order to understand the history of popular entertainment in the metropolis. From the street ballads of Tyburn Fair celebrations that accompanied convicted felons on the way to the gallows, through the Pleasure Gardens at Vauxhall and Ranelagh, to the Song-and-supper clubs and early music hall entertainments, “London In Song” explores the history of London by examining the popular music that it inspired.
“London in Song” includes songs, explainer videos, literature, weekly interactive Zoom sessions on Tuesdays at 11:30 a.m. ET, and a LinkedIn discussion board to connect with other participants. Read the press release here.
Live sessions are scheduled on January 12, 19, 26, and February 2, 2021.
If you have already registered for this or a previous London Book Club, you will receive all emails and do not have to register again. You can start the series here.
