Christmas Concert

by

Marcus Paul, formerly Deputy Head, Queen’s College, Taunton


This talk will focus on the life and work of James and Agnes Kinnier Wilson in 1870s frontier America. The Wilsons’ adventures and life story provide a gripping tale of romance, danger, self-sacrifice, faith and hope. Their experiences give a unique insight to the life and work of a missionary couple from Ireland and Scotland in the ‘Wild West’ of America and the world of ‘cowboys and Indians’.  The lecture will be illustrated by over a hundred historic slides of 1870s America most of which will never have been seen before by the audience. Marcus has material on the Cheyenne exodus of 1878 which has never previously been published.

‘The Visual Culture of Politics in Britain c.1880-1914’

by

Dr James Thompson, University of Bristol.


James will focus how Britons understood ‘public opinion’ prior to the rise of polling. The talk will examine how posters, banners, films and photographs inform us about the visual culture of British politics in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. A period in which major issues, including those of a social, imperial, nationalist, trading and military nature, and many others, were reflected vividly in various visual forms.
