Abstract:

In Eleanor Smith's Hull House Songs: The Music of Protest and Hope in Jane Addams's Chicago, the author-editors republish Hull House Songs (1916), together with critical commentary. Hull-House Songs contains five politically engaged compositions written by the Hull-House music educator, Eleanor Smith. The commentary that accompanies the folio includes an examination of Smith's poetic sources and musical influences; a study of Jane Addams's aesthetic theories; and a complete history of the arts at Hull-House. Through this focus upon aesthetic and cultural programs at Hull-House, the author-editors identify the external, and internalized, forces of domination (class position, racial identity, patriarchal disenfranchisement) that limited the work of the Hull-House women, while also recovering the sometimes hidden emancipatory possibilities of their legacy. 0Contributors are: Graham Cassano, Jessica Payette, Rima Lunin Schultz and Jocelyn Zelasko.
