Online Lecture by Steven Hughes

Patrick Bratton, colleague, friend, fellow devotee of Italian fencing, and the instructor at Sala della Spada in Carlisle, PA, USA, will be holding a Zoom Meeting Jan 26, 2021, at 06:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada). His guest speaker will be Steven Hughes, author of Politics of the Sword: Dueling, Honor, and Masculinity in Modern Italy (Columbus, OH: Ohio State University Press, 2007).

Hughes examines the rise of dueling in the wake of Italy’s unification, a time that witnessed a number of anti-dueling movements but which also coincides with the proliferation of works on fencing, so many of which became influential world-wide.

If you’re interested let me know and I will share the login information with you.
