Burgundy - A Forgotten Power
Tuesday 16 May 2023, 6.00pm to 7.00pm BST
These days, Burgundy is renowned for its wine and bucolic charms while the extent of its role in European history is perhaps overshadowed by later empires. Yet in its late medieval heyday when Burgundy was a Kingdom in all but name, Burgundian lands were the stage for many pioneering events, from religious reformism and colonialism to industrial manufacturing and development of capitalism.
Join Nirvana Romell for a talk ‘Burgundy – A Forgotten Power’ to learn how its ground-breaking advances in politics, art and culture affected the course of European history.
6.00pm - Welcome from Claire Baxter Cambridge Alumni Office and Daniel Moore, Distant Horizons
6.10pm - Talk from Nirvana Romell
6.45pm - Q&A with Nirvana, facilitated by Daniel Moore
7.00pm - Finish
Please note, this event will be recorded.
This talk is part of the Cambridge Alumni Travel programme, and is organised by Distant Horizons who will be arranging the alumni journey to Burgundy in September 2023 which will be accompanied by Nirvana Romell.
