Add a talk


This half-day workshop will explore sociability in Britain across the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, primarily in Britain but a keynote paper by Valerie Capdeville will also explore this in an imperial dimension. Papers will consider both elite and popular ideals and practices, and seek to explore how these differed, and what changed over time. Discussion will also focus on tensions and ambiguities within conventions of sociability or moments when the latter dissolve completely under pressure of disagreement, and also the relationship between sociability and ‘things’.
