It is with regret that due to the current Coronavirus crisis this event has had to be postponed. We hope to reschudule to a later date.
Dr Isaac Nakhimovsky, the Quentin Skinner Fellow 2020, will give the annual lecture and participate in the related symposium. Online registration will be available shortly.
The post-Napoleonic Holy Alliance is often described as the reactionary foil for the emergence of a new order of democratic nation-states. This lecture challenges histories built on that assumption by explaining why, initially, the Holy Alliance was seen as the dawning of a liberal future and the founding of a federal Europe. In presenting a new perspective on the intellectual history of the Holy Alliance, the lecture offers a fresh map for navigating political and intellectual debates about European integration and global order through the twentieth century.
This event is organised with support from the Faculty of History in Cambridge and CRASSH. For any queries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
