  This is exactly what I was looking for. I didn't know you could give
directly a string to global-set-key, rather than a command (as I
mentioned, my knowledge of elisp is next to nil).

  New problem: When I do that, and then press ctrl-s to start a search
and press the key combination in question, rather than inserting { in
the search area at the bottom of the window, it instead cancels the
search and inserts the { in the current buffer, as if I hadn't started a
search at all.

  Why is it doing that?

Because when you've typed C-s, the global keymap is not the highest
precedence keymap that has bound M-7: isearch-mode-map is, and it
binds all escape sequences (to which Meta-prefixed characters are
translated) to isearch-other-meta-char.
