The Covid-19 pandemic unfortunately resulted in the cancellation of our normal autumn lectures for 2020. However, we have decided to offer an autumn season of three online lectures via Zoom. You will need access to a computer with an internet connection to view these lectures. This online lecture series is being offered in association with the University of York's Centre for Eighteenth Century Studies (CECS) and we are deeply grateful for the assistance of CECS in making these lectures possible. Each lecture will take place at 2:30pm on a Saturday and will be open to all, but attendees must register for each lecture separately. A link is given below for each lecture: please click this link to go to the appropriate page at the Centre for Eighteenth Century Studies where you will be able to register.
Dr Ralph Harrington of York Georgian Society will draw on his recent research into the history of Fairfax House to shed new light on the restoration of the house carried out by York Civic Trust in the 1980s .
Dr Catriona Kennedy of the University of York will be discussing the turbulent politics of Frances Stewart, the 'Republican Countess'.
In this joint presentation University of York research students Holly Day and Lilian Tabois, the two winners of the York Georgian Society's Nuttgens Award for 2020, will talk about their research into aspects of Georgian history and culture.
