CRS Labor Activism and Music series - Eleanor Smith and "Hull House Songs": A conversation with Jessica Payette, Part 1
Jessica Payette and Graham Cassano discuss their joint project, with Rima Lunin Schultz, Eleanor Smith’s Hull House Songs: The Music of Protest and Hope in Jane Addams’ Chicago (Brill, forthcoming). Smith was the head of the Hull House Music School during Jane Addams' tenure as head resident. In addition to being a pedagogical theorist, an administrator, and a teacher, Smith was a composer trained in the formal German and American music traditions. In this podcast, we discuss the origin of Smith's work, her goals, and the song "The Sweat Shop."
