From College Library to Country House

September 13-17, 2021


From College Library to Country House is conceived from the perspective of the British aristocracy and gentry whose education centered upon preparing to run the country estate, including house and collections, and will argue for the importance of the library and the book collection in this process. This intensive residential course is based in the exceptional surroundings of Clare College* in the center of the University of Cambridge. Directed by Dr. Andrew Moore, the programme focuses upon a series of iconic libraries including those at Houghton Hall and Holkham Hall.
