Résumé

The history of the nobility in Europe is well researched. For most European states comprehensive works inform on the -rise and fall- of the historical formations which dominated the continent well into the 20

century and in some respects play important roles until today. However, the question of how the European nobilities succeeded or failed in retaining their social position often obscured the many manifestations of border-transcending sociability amongst old and new elites. These encounters and interactions were in most countries still dominated by the old aristocracy but – in more or less successful ways - also integrated new intellectual, technical or artistic elites or even saw the latter in the driver’s seat. This workshop will look at one specific category of places where old and new elites were linked, arenas where these groups not only met and interacted but also where the rules and conventions for new elites were forged.
