Date: 
Wednesday, June 26, 2019 - 4:00pm

Inquiry welcomes back ROBERT MORRISON, the Queen’s National Scholar at Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario. We continue our conversation about his latest entertaining history: THE REGENCY YEARS: DURING WHICH JANE AUSTEN WRITES, NAPOLEON FIGHTS, BYRON MAKES LOVE, AND BRITAIN BECOMES MODERN. Tonight we talk about Britain on the world stage during those few years of the Prince Regent in early 19th century. Napoleon meets his Waterloo, America declares war on Canada, Britain expands its interests in India, sends criminals to Australia, a volcano explodes, and everybody wants opium.
