2:00pm - Dr. Allan Chapman Lecture
"Ghosts and the Victorians." Why were 19th-century people so fascinated by ghosts and spirits? After all, science, steam, and electric light should have abolished spooky ideas, shouldn't they? But no, the “Victorians,” in Great Britain, Europe, and in the rapidly expanding USA, were intrigued by them. From writers such as Edgar Allan Poe to scientific investigators; from celebrity mediums, such as the Scottish-American Daniel D. Home, to “Ghost Shows” in popular music halls; from America's Fox sisters and the table-rappers to eminent Church leaders and the learned Society for Psychical Research. Where did this fascination for the ghostly come from, in this first industrial age? And why, with all our modern technology, does it still persist today? To find out more, come along and hear Dr. Allan Chapman, who directs BSU's Eurospring Programme in Oxford each year.
