Event Details

£3 members/£5 non-members

Mountain precipices, erupting volcanoes, battles, malaria and the ever-present danger of social failure: travel on the eighteenth-century Grand Tour could be unpleasantly hazardous. In this talk, Sarah Goldsmith will explore why Grand Tourists risked such dangers. Could these perils ever be more than a dangerous nuisance and was the Grand Tour more than its famous association with Italy, arts and classical antiquity?

Dr Sarah Goldsmith is a Chancellor’s Fellow at the Univerity of Edinburgh, specialising in the histories of masculinity, the body and travel. She is a BBC/AHRC New Generation Thinker and her first monograph, Masculinity and Danger on the Eighteenth-Century Grand Tour was published in 2020 with the University of London Press.

The talks starts at 6.30pm. Joining details will be sent to attendees the day before.
