European Universities from the Enlightenment to 1914

Oxford University Press

Universities were elite organizations, but as democracy advanced there were movements to bring them closer to the ‘people’. The British model of university ‘extension’ through lectures for the general public was widely influential, and led to the ‘popular universities’ movement in France, Spain, and Italy, at its height in the 1900s.
