David Norbrook in his recent essay mentioned "aestheticization of politics" in
relation to Kantorowicz and Burckhardt. Look at his article "The Emperor's New
Body" in <Texual Practice> 10.2 (Summer 1996): 329-357, particularly 334 and
note 11. And also his other essay, "Life and death of Renaissance Man" in
<Raritan> 8.4 (Spring 1989): 89-110.

If your students haven't already joined up, there is an International Youth
Hostel organization, which has lodgings in London in various locations.  They
are cheap, usually with kitchen facilities (food is very expensive in London,
and I highly recommend bringing your own coffee, as the beans there have an odd
taste to them, by US standards), and the atmosphere at the Youth Hostels is
quite collegial ifyou'll pardon the expresion.

The HQ for Hostelling International is at:

733 15th Street, NW
Suite 840
Washington, D.C.  20005

(202) 783-6161

Memberships are reasonable ($25?  I forget) and you would receive a guide to
Hostels available all over the world.  THe Guides come with information about
what each specific hostel has to offer.

Good luck,
