Friday 28th May

12.30 - 13.30 BST

Join us for a 'behind the scenes' peek at a major new exhibition on Mary, Queen of Scots and Elizabeth I, set to open at the British Library later this year.

Event cover

The event features Professor Susan Doran, Senior Research Fellow in History at both Jesus College and St Benet's Hall, and Professor Paulina Kewes, Helen Morag Fellow, Tutor and Professor of English Literature at Jesus College. Paulina is also the convenor of our Celebrating the Elizabethan College series of 450th Anniversary events, of which this is a part.

Having both contributed essays to the exhibition catalogue, which Professor Doran has also edited, the pair discuss some of the outstanding primary sources on display, and how they illuminate the relationship between the Protestant Queen and her Catholic cousin, and the world they both inhabited.
