Snow Globes: From Art to Kitsch

Snow globes are childhood’s wintery dreamlands, so powerful an allegory that they appear in films, television series, and commercials to carry spectators into a holiday happily-ever-after. During the holiday season, should a snow globe not be readily available from a nearby toy chest or shelf, you can download a snowglobe app for both iPhone and Android, transforming your quotidian emails and social media sites. The ongoing popularity of these iconic pop culture objects, now transformed to the digital realm, gives pause to ask: why snow globes?

New podcast of interest

 

Dear H-Net subscribers

 

I write you as a co-host of History Talk, a podcast about current events in historical perspective produced by the Ohio State University. We recently interviewed Steve Conn and African historian Sarah Van Beurden on the subject, and thought you might enjoy or send along to your colleagues.
