Event description

Description

Lecture: Dr Holly Ferneaux will present a paper that asks why a particularly gentle soldier is the hero of so many Crimean narratives. It looks at why the cultural response to this famously mismanaged war should feature an unexpected figure, the military man of feeling.

Part of Birkbeck's Arts Week 2012.
