"Victoria's Values: Marking the Centenary of Queen Victoria's Death"
Special Events

Wed., Sep. 12, 2001, 7:30pm
Location: Auditorium, Spencer Museum of Art
Victor Bailey is professor of modern British history at the University of Kansas, and director of the Hall Center for the Humanities.

The concept "Victorian values" has entered the vernacular, repeated time and again by politicians and the media, especially in England. On the occasion of the centenary of Queen Victoria's death in 1901, it seems appropriate to ask what the woman who gave her name to the Victorian age actually valued.

Bailey will, for one evening, put aside his usual interest in the criminal and deviant side of Victorian life, as for example in his most recent book This Rash Act: Suicide Across the Life Cycle in the Victorian City (1998), and ascend the social scale to offer an illustrated assessment of the "Widow of Windsor."

This event is free and open to the public.
