Please join Rush Rhees Library for a talk by Professor of History Stewart Weaver entitled ‘Victorian Moments, 1819-1901.’
The bicentennial of the birth of Queen Victoria offers an occasion to reflect on both the monarch herself and the age to which she lent her name. In this lecture, Prof. Weaver will discussa few key episodes that shaped contemporary public perception of the Queen and that continue to define for us the meaning of "Victorian."
Held to celebrate the opening of a new exhibition in Rare Books & Special Collections, Victoria: A Ruling Image, this talk will be immediately followed by a reception in Rare Books, 2nd floor, Rush Rhees Library.
The lecture is free and open to the public. Parking is available in the Library Lot.
