At a Glance

We love traveling. But until the 17th century, few people traveled for pleasure. Those who undertook a journey — usually a risky and uncomfortable experience — were soldiers, merchants or pilgrims. And then, everything changed: young upper-class gentlemen, and some ladies, followed a more or less standard itinerary through France and Italy, that served as an educational rite of passage. In this lecture, Anthropologist and Historian Teresa de la Vega will re-create the pathways of these intrepid and romantic travelers through a wondrous cultural landscape before the advent of mass tourism.

General Notes

Your online lecture will take place live over the course of 1-2 hours. All times are listed in the EASTERN time zone. If you live in a different time zone, please adjust your schedule accordingly. This live online experience uses Zoom Webinar, an easy-to-use web video service. All you need is an Internet connection and your computer. You will receive a confirmation email when you enroll and a reminder email one week, one day, as well as the morning of the event with a link and instructions on how to tune in. You will not be pictured on screen during the lecture, but you will have the opportunity to ask questions to the instructor live using the Q&A box. Unless otherwise noted in the lecture description, all those who enroll in this program can attend the live event and will also receive a recording of the lecture that you can watch any time within two weeks following the live event.
