All the elegance associated with the upper class awaits you at this very special event.

Our featured speaker for this event, Jennifer Nesbitt of Penn State (York campus) will discuss where we leave the Crawley family and their assorted staff. We'll travel back in time when the series began with the sinking of the Titanic, include the transformations wrought by the Great War, and we'll consider the wisdom of ending the series with New Year's Day, 1926, Drawing on literature and history, Dr. Nesbitt will show how the opulent tapestry of events are woven into a larger social, political and cultural pattern of the early twentieth-century.
