McGlothlin-Street Hall, Room 102 Monday, February 25, 7:30pm
Kiplin Hall in north England is homesite of the Calvert family, the only English nobility to establish residence in the American colonies. It is within a quick (and cheap) train ride from literary sites, both those written about and the homes and gravesites of the English Romantic writers. The home is itself an architectural marvel, with a wonderful art collection, but is also site of historical changes in landholding patterns and rights of residents and farmers. Dr. Schulz describes the opportunities to live on the site while studying (and working on) the continuing projects in preservation, restoration, and other hands-on historical and historiographical studies. Schulz is Distinguished Professor Emeritus in history at the University of South Carolina.
