An Evening in London

Tuesday, April 8, 2014 6:00 PM

Description

Join us for An Evening in London: A Talk About How the Greatest City in the Western World Got to be That Way. Dr. Robert Bucholz, Professor of History at Loyola and co- author of London: A Social and Cultural History, 15501750, will speak about Londons rise to world prominence. From 1550 to 1750, Londoners invented, re-invented, or borrowed for the Anglophone world constitutional monarchy, a relatively free press, and the first viable commercial theater since ancient times among many other developments. No other city in the world did more to catalyze modernity.
