This educational Weekend comprises 22 ‘events’. The lectures and guided visits showcase recent research on the Early Modern period, making it readily accessible to a wide audience. Among the internationally known scholars and well-known, more popular historians are Alexandra Walsham, David Starkey and Miranda Kaufmann, who will cover topics from the Tudor Counter-Reformation to Black Tudors.
Lectures and guided tours are classified under four themes: Kings and Queens; War and Politics; the Church, and Social History to allow audiences to gain access to new interpretations, ideas and knowledge in a range of early modern topics. Those attending book their chosen events using a pick-and-mix approach, using the descriptions provided on the Centre’s webpages.
