Event details

We will be holding a one-day cultural event on Saturday 5th November consisting of a series of short talks led by experts from within History and English at the University of Southampton. This thought provoking and inspiring conference will provide you with the opportunity to learn and engage in discussion about the Tudors from academics of international distinction.

This study day is the launch event for the programme of Tudor Revels that will celebrate the re-opening of the Tudor House in Southampton. It will form part of a programme of activities co-ordinated by Dr Cheryl Butler (Head of Culture, Eastleigh Borough Council) which will culminate in a grand finale in September 2012. A group of staff from History and English, who are all specialists in the early modern period, will present aspects of their research on the Tudors and Tudor England. The format - a series of 4-5 short talks based on exciting new research with plenty of time for questions - is intended to stimulate discussion and debate. Speakers will include Dr Alice Hunt talking on court ceremonial, Professor Mark Stoyle speaking about witchcraft, Dr Francois Soyer discussing heresy and the Spanish Inquisition and Professor Maria Hayward on staging early Tudor court revels.
