Vacca Lecture Today: "The Golden Age of Russian Culture"

Tonight's second Vacca Lecture of the spring promises to be interesting. Dmitri Goncharov will speak on the "Golden Age of Russian Culture: 19th Century." From the program description...
The extended nineteenth century (1800-1917) became a golden age of Russian culture. During this time Russia developed a reputation as a country capable of making an important and creative contribution to modern civilization, a major source of Russian national pride. The presentation will address generally the history of cultural and social development in nineteenth century Russia with the focus on its most significant achievements: literature and classical music.
This is another opportunity to hear an accomplished scholar and expert in Russian history speak, especially for those of us not fortunate enough to be taking one of Dr. Goncharov's classes this year. Tonight's lecture will be delivered in Hill House classroom at 7:00 PM with a reception to follow.
