Talk: Did Elizabeth’s Gender Really Matter?
In her talk on the iconic Tudor queen, Professor Susan Doran will explore how attitudes towards Elizabeth’s gender changed over the 20th century. She also asks, how much did the fact that Elizabeth was a queen, and not a king, really affect her reign?
Susan Doran is Professor of Early Modern History at the University of Oxford and Senior Research Fellow at Jesus College and St Benet’s Hall, Oxford. Her most recent book – Elizabeth I and her Circle (OUP) – has recently come out in paperback.
