Contextual Lecture Series 2017: Continental Culture: The Road to Europe

Throughout this series we examine facets of European development, social and political unrest and the remapping of a continent. Over the past 200 years Europe has been fraught with war, disease and struggle but from the darkness came cultural progression and political innovation that have changed art, politics and the world.
