Singer-songwriter Miss Emily Brown will conclude Carleton’s Department of History Shannon Lecture Series on storytelling with a musical presentation on Friday, Nov. 26.

Raised in Iroquois, Ontario, Miss Emily Brown was the recipient of the 2009 Canada Council for the Arts grant for composition, which she used to research and compose her second album, In Technicolor.  The project began with her grandmother’s wartime journal and developed into a compendium of songs dealing with themes of femininity and independence in stressful times. 

In her presentation, Emily will weave together songs from her album, thoughts on the process of moving from archive to artwork and reflections on her unique position as a historian and storyteller.

Her performance takes place from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. in the Carleton University Art Gallery, located in the St. Patrick Building. The presentation is free, open to the public and followed by a reception. Paid parking is available in lot P6, located at the intersection of University Drive and Campus Avenue.

This free public lecture series is made possible through the Shannon Donation, a major anonymous gift from a friend of the Department of History. For more information, please contact the department at 613-520-2828.
