    Event Details/Other Comments:
    The UVA at Oxford Seminar will examine perceptions and connections between Britain and America. The views of the Seminar’s faculty leaders, British-born Andrew O’Shaughnessy, whose field is early American history, juxtaposed with those of American Jeanie Grant Moore, whose field is British literature, give kaleidoscopic perspectives of relations between the two countries as they have developed a unique friendship.
    Beginning with early encounters in the Renaissance, and moving through the 18th Century and the Victorian Age, their series of lectures will use historical and literary lenses to view the evolution of what Winston Churchill once called the “Special Relationship.”
    Join faculty experts for a weeklong learning experience in beautiful Oxford with excursions to Liverpool and London. Engage in classroom lectures and discussions, take guided tours of historic sites, visit museums, and live in-college at the nearly 500-year-old Trinity College, University of Oxford.
