Cruise around Britain with Hillsdale College, 1-13 June 2019

A cruise to remember

The Hills­dale Col­lege Cruise in June 2019 is a spec­tac­u­lar jour­ney around Britain. Look­ing at the cal­en­dar, you will  find that it coin­cides with a his­toric event, the 75th Anniver­sary of D-Day. Around that same time, Hills­dale Col­lege Press pub­lish­es the final doc­u­ment vol­ume of Win­ston S. Churchill, the offi­cial biog­ra­phy. This marks com­ple­tion of the great work, fifty-six years since the project began. The longest biog­ra­phy in his­to­ry, it offers a trove of new mate­r­i­al for read­ers, stu­dents and schol­ars.

Hills­dale cruis­es have a fine rep­u­ta­tion. They are exclu­sive, high qual­i­ty edu­ca­tion­al tours of excit­ing venues, com­bined with stim­u­lat­ing on-board lec­tures on a vari­ety of sub­jects.…

Movies at Hillsdale

In 1927, Win­ston Churchill wrote to his wife Clemen­tine, “I am becom­ing a film fan.” He installed pro­jec­tion equip­ment for movies at Che­quers, the coun­try home of British prime min­is­ters, in 1943, and at his fam­i­ly home Chartwell in 1946.

“Churchill and the Movies” is the final event by Hillsdale’s Cen­ter for Con­struc­tive Alter­na­tives in the 2018-19 aca­d­e­m­ic year. It explores two movies regard­ed as Churchill’s favorites and two bio­graph­i­cal movies in his­tor­i­cal con­text. My lec­ture address­es Hen­ry V with Lau­rence Olivi­er. We will dis­cuss Churchill’s under­stand­ing of Shake­speare, and appli­ca­tion of the lessons of The Bard’s plays.…
