Dining with Mr. Darcy:
 

 

A Look at Georgian and Regency Food

A Talk by Carl Raymond

Dining with Mr. Darcy is an overview of the food world throughout the Georgian period and the Regency. The 18th century witnessed great changes in all forms of social life from the growth of the middle class, the of rise industrialization, to a rapid increase on the consumption of new luxury goods. Middle and upper class Georgian tables groaned with succulent roasts, savory puddings, and luscious desserts. With a special  focus on the writings of Jane Austen and food as presented in her novels, Raymond discusses in detail what was and wasn’t on Georgian tables, how it was cooked, as well as new inventions in the kitchen and garden, and even what Jane and her family cooked and ate themselves. Most of all, this talk will consider what one might have encountered should one have had the coveted opportunity to share a meal with Mr. Darcy, himself.

  Simon Henry Petty-Fitzmaurice, Earl of Kerry

Carl Raymond, a food historian, writer and museum educator, returns to the ESU following his very well received previous talks, At the Queen’s Table and From Dickens to Downton. Carl has worked at the Merchant's House Museum as well as King Manor Museum but trained at the French Culinary Institute as well as the Institute for Culinary Education. He holds a diploma in Culinary Arts. Carl has taught recreational cooking classes throughout New York City and has lectured on food history at the Merchant's House Museum, the National Arts Club, the Metropolitan Opera Guide and the English Speaking Union.  Recently, he was a contributing writer on SAVORING GOTHAM: A Food Lover's Companion to New York City and is at work on his own book—a culinary history of the Gilded Age.

Portrait of a Woman in Silk: Hidden Histories of the British Atlantic World
May

6:15 PM18:15

Portrait of a Woman in Silk: Hidden Histories of the British Atlantic World

Portrait of a Woman in Silk: Hidden Histories of the British Atlantic World

Presented by Dr. Zara Anishanslin

While looking through silks in the Textile Study Room of London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, historian Dr. Zara Anishanslin was struck by similarities between mid-18th century English silks and a dress featured in a portrait by Robert Feke hanging at the Winterthur Museum. From her discovery, she began to research and explore the cultural history of the 18th century British Atlantic world, where dresses like the one pictured often declared the social, economic and political capital of the wearer. Her resulting story revolves around the mid-18th-century silk dress from the portrait and involves the famed English designer of its pattern, Anna Maria Garthwaite; the Spitalfields weaver of the fabric, Simon Julins; the wealthy American owner of the dress, Anne Shippen Willing; and the portrait artist, Robert Feke. Tracing the full biographies of this network of four people, Dr. Anishanslin ultimately uncovered a whole world of hidden histories of thousands of people, things, ideas, and events connected to this portrait of a woman from one of most powerful families in the Colonies.

Dr. Anishanslin will show how this dress demonstrates the popularity of botanical designs in fashion, and discuss how the production and selling of such goods in the 18th-century British Atlantic marketplace created a consumer community that tied all of its inhabitants together.

Dr. Zara Anishanslin is a historian and professor specializing in Early American and Atlantic World History, with a focus on 18th-century material culture. Dr. Zara Anishanslin has taught at CUNY and Columbia University, and since 2016, she has been Assistant Professor of History and Art History at the University of Delaware. She was a Royal Oak Foundation Scholar at The Attingham Trust’s 2017 Attingham Summer School. Her recent book, Portrait of a Woman in Silk: Hidden Histories of the British Atlantic World, published in 2016 by Yale University Press was a finalist for 2017 Best First Book Prize, Berkshire Conference of Women Historians.

Lansdowne: The Last Great Whig

Lansdowne: The Last Great Whig

Presented by Simon Petty-Fitzmaurice, Earl of Kerry

Henry Charles Keith Petty-Fitzmaurice, 5th Marquess of Lansdowne (1845–1927), was one of the last hereditary aristocrats to wield power by virtue of his birth—and he used it to establish himself as a force to be reckoned with in British politics for half a century.

  Simon Henry Petty-Fitzmaurice, Earl of Kerry

Simon Henry Petty-Fitzmaurice, Earl of Kerry

Simon Henry Petty-Fitzmaurice, Earl of Kerry, will discuss his ancestor and trace the long arc of Lansdowne’s career, which included service as Governor-General of Canada, Viceroy of India, Secretary of State for War, Foreign Secretary, and Leader of the House of Lords. He will present the man and politician in the context of his era, offering insight into his own life and achievements and also fascinating details about his interactions with the leading personalities and contemporary events of his day. He will show how Lord Lansdowne was a moderate progressive, honest and courteous to the last, trusted by everyone, and struggling—as did so many of his class and generation—with the decline of British power that followed the end of World War I.

His story, based on private family archives, is that of a statesman who played a major role at a pivotal moment in the history of the United Kingdom.

Margaret Thatcher: Britain Transformed

Margaret Thatcher: Britain Transformed

Margaret Thatcher: Britain Transformed

A Lecture by Noel Sloan

Margaret Thatcher was one of the outstanding leaders of the 20th century: she had a radical vision and implemented it. She changed Britain so much that even her opponents came to adopt her policies, and some of her ideas have been implemented by countries around the world.

In the 1970s, Britain was regarded as the "sick man of Europe," a country whose governments were unable to address the problems of a weak economy and industrial unrest. Under Thatcher’s leadership, Britain's economy, by the end of the 1980s, had become a model for other countries to copy. Once again Britain's influence was felt around the world. Her achievements include cutting income tax rates while also reducing public debt, privatizing state-owned businesses, taming militant trade unions, and contributing to the collapse of Soviet communism.

Noel Sloan describes how Britain's Prime Minister led this transformation. He discusses Margaret Thatcher's vision for her country and her extraordinary leadership. He assesses her achievements and her place in history.

  Simon Henry Petty-Fitzmaurice, Earl of Kerry

Noel Sloan is an international banker who has worked in London and New York. He lived in Britain throughout Margaret Thatcher's time as Prime Minister, and he brings to this subject both his experience of Britain in the 1980s and his academic training in politics. Noel has a Master's degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics from Trinity College, Oxford. He was an English-Speaking Union Scholar at The Hotchkiss School and is a National Patron of the English-Speaking Union of the United States. Noel lives in Manhattan and Salisbury, CT.  He has lectured widely about Margaret Thatcher in the US and the UK.

Hidden Connections: Slavery and the British Country House

Hidden Connections: Slavery and the British Country House

Hidden Connections: Slavery and the British Country House

Presented by Dr. Madge Dresser

The British country house in all its opulence and refinement seems worlds away from the fetid horrors of a slave ship. However the trade in enslaved Africans and slave-produced goods fueled the wealth that funded the creation of many 17th-to-19th-century British stately homes. Slavery-related houses appear throughout the British Isles and are concentrated in the major slaving ports of London, Bristol and Liverpool. About 10% of elite country houses has associations with slavery, but other houses had indirect ties and consumed slave-produced goods. Some of Britain’s aristocratic house owners’ money resulted from the slave trade itself—invested in the South Sea Company whose purpose was to sell slaves to the Spanish Colonies. Others married heiresses with ties to plantations such as Baron Thomas Onslow, who built a Palladian mansion at Clandon Park in Surrey (NT) ‘owing to his judicious marriage to the heiress of a West Indian fortune.’ Even materials used in these treasure houses resulted from slave activities such as ‘Spanish mahogany’ staircases and mahogany furniture which actually derived from Caribbean slave plantations.

Profits from slave labor at sugar plantations—whose products appeared on the country house dining table—aided family fortunes and funded stately home remodeling such as at Penryhn Castle (NT) whose Pennant family owned five plantations in Jamaica. These renovations were also linked to the wealth generated in the slave colonies of Virginia and the Carolinas. British family portraits might feature black servants, often as turbaned young pages at the side of their master or mistress as at Belton House in Lincolnshire (NT). The kneeling black figures adorning Dyrham Park's (NT) interior are best understood against the longstanding family connections with slavery.

Historian and Professor Dr. Madge Dresser will show these houses and explore some of the stories behind their connections with slavery to reflect on what they mean for our understanding of these beautiful buildings.
