Regency Aesthetics: The Costumes, Locations, and Décor of Bridgerton

When the Shonda Rhimes series, Bridgerton, hit streaming services in December 2020, history enthusiasts everywhere asked the question: how historically accurate is it? In this upcoming virtual lecture, Michelle Fitzgerald will talk about the material world of the show and what it might be able to teach us about the real early nineteenth-century.

Michelle Fitzgerald is the Curator of Collections at the Johns Hopkins University Museums. With an interest in Chesapeake furniture in the 18th and 19th centuries, she has previously held positions at The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, Maryland Center for History and Culture, and the Maryland State Archives. She received her MA from the University of Delaware’s Winterthur Program in American Material Culture and is published in the University of Chicago Press’ Winterthur Portfolio and AASLH’s History News magazine.
