Public Spaces, Private Lives:

Social and Intellectual Life at the End of the Eighteenth Century


The end of the eighteenth century marked a turning point in the social and intellectual life of the great cities of Europe and America.  From caf├ęs to public houses, from drawing rooms to the great public parks, men and women enjoyed greater freedoms to socialize and debate the issues of the day.  Enjoy food, drink, music, readings, and lively conversation in the spirit of these great salons as Penn State faculty offer informal presentations on a variety of topics focusing on art and culture in the late eighteenth century.
