While servant narratives have been popular for centuries, there seems to be a resurging interest in these stories in recent decades. Many contemporary British and North American writers, filmmakers, and television executives have turned to master/servant relationships as their subject matter. Films like The Remains of the Day and Gosford Park garnered numerous Oscar nominations and substantial box office profits. PBS created such classics as Upstairs, Downstairs and Manor House, as well as the phenomenally successful Downton Abbey! Even mainstream American television has piloted its own versions of the British servant in shows as wide-ranging as The Fresh Prince of Bel Air to reality TV's Supernanny. Join Ann McClellan as she explores the history behind the rise and fall of British servants and why Americans are so fascinated by their stories on page and screen.

A dedicated Anglophile, Ann McClellan has a Ph.D. in English Literature and has more than fifteen years' experience of college-level teaching. As a specialist in 19th and 20th century British Literature, McClellan's work explores the complex relationships between literature and culture, with published research ranging from fictional representations of British women intellectuals to her current project on fan culture and the popularity of Sherlock Holmes. We are grateful to the New Hampshire Humanities for providing the funding for this presentation.

We All Belong: Art and Friendship Go Hand-in-Hand

This fun, interactive and FREE art program is for adults who are learning English as a second language, refugees, immigrants and their children, as well as Museum Member (limited to 5) adults and children. Join us at the Children's Museum of New Hampshire, a warm, inclusive community, to engage in meaningful, out-of-school arts experiences. 

Play, create, express yourself, share your ideas and form new friendships. The Museum's art gallery curator and educator staff will lead participants in activities that everyone can do including painting, drawing, collage, and more. 

Adults will be in one classroom, while children (ages 5 and up) will be in another classroom down the hall, doing different art projects. This will leave time for kids to bond with kids, and adults to bond and relax with adults. Kids ages 5 and up only, please. 

This class is designed as a way for immigrants and refugees to become a part of our community, which is why we are limiting Museum member participation to 5 adult/child pairs. 

Pre-registration is appreciated and space is limited. Drop-ins welcome if space is available. Participation in this program is FREE thanks to support from the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts and a private donor.

"Franco-Ontarian musician Damien Robitaille introduces us to the extraordinary history of the people in the United States of French Canadian heritage. Driving from Montreal to Los Angeles, winding his way through New England, New York, Michigan, the Midwest and the legendary Far West, he brings the milestone events of their exodus to life. He uncovers a paradoxical, almost imaginary society dissolved into American life but still very much alive. During his travels he meets all kinds of engaging people and visits many places steeped in memory, and we begin to understand a multifaceted diaspora three centuries old and more than 12 million strong. An epic journey into the heart of America, where people of French Canadian descent, helped open the frontiers of the American Dream." -IMDB
