Dmitry Alexeevich Redin examines Russian literature that has always been significantly immersed in a topical context, to some extent rivaling or even, in certain periods, replacing journalism. He focuses on the short story by V. А. Sollogub “Tarantas” (“The carriage”) in which the author gives a satirical, but very detailed picture of an “anti-ideal” of noble education (on the example of one of the personas of the short story, Ivan Vasilievich).
Lyudmila Posokhova tries to reconstruct education strategies and programs for children of regiment and Sotnia Starshinas (higher ranks) in the Hetmanate and Sloboda Ukraine in the 18th century with the help of ego-documents of Starshina family members.
In his plenary lecture Jean Boutier, Directeur d’Etudes at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales in Marseille, highlights the spread and influence of educational institutions established specifically for the nobility from 1550 to the end of the 18th century. He also analyses the effects of the presence of nobles from Central and Eastern Europe from the second half of the 16th century onwards.
Amélie Voisin traces the education of Francis Stephen of Lorraine, ninth child and third son of the ducal couple of Lorraine and successor of his father and the future Duke of Lorraine, who was educated at the court of Luneville under the supervision of his parents and later on in Vienna. Was Prince Francis Stephen the result of both types of education or was a slide towards one kind of education noticeable?
Who studied at the universities of the Habsburg Empire, the German Länder and at the only local University, that of Nagyszombat (transferred to Buda in 1770)? How did the profile of the sons of noblemen differ from those of the commoners? Victor Karady explores these questions under three major problem areas: The intensity of the formal-institutional educational investment, the choices of academic premises and the various collective characteristics of the student body.
