150th Anniversary Scholar Series: The John F. Callahan Lecture: *urbs procul est, urbs magna, Chicago*: Latin Drama, Jesuit Education, and the 1893 Chicago World¿s Fair

Performances of Latin drama stood at the core of Jesuit education from its start, and in the late 19th century they took on complex new significance as Jesuit schools in the U.S. sparked renewed interest in their production. This talk explores how Jesuit educators saw the theatrical performance in Latin as a means not only of student formation but also of self-promotion and self-defense during a turbulent period in U.S. higher education and Catholic immigration history.
