Seminars – 2021

Our seminar focuses on a highly individualized experience in which participants have ample opportunities to interact with one another and our guest scholars. We promote an intimate environment and each seminar creates a community knitted together by a mutual passion for the nineteenth-century’s most critical period. We invite you to come and experience a truly unique immersive weekend that features original, innovative programming as well as carefully chosen dining experiences.
