Subject: Conference Announcement "Queen Elizabeth I: Past and Present"
The Centre for British Studies at the University of Bamberg cordially
invites you to the following conference:
Elizabeth I: Past and Present
International Conference on the Occasion
of the 400th Anniversary of her Death
22 to 24 May 2003 in Bamberg, Germany
The Queen's life and reign and her abiding popularity make for a
compelling story and this conference will tell it well.
The conference will appeal to everyone interested in the charismatic
character of Elizabeth I, her time and afterlife. Distinguished speakers
from Europe and the United States will focus on important aspects of
Elizabeth's subtle and resourceful political power and the long-standing
struggle she faced at home and abroad as well as the threats posed to
her power. The conference will also bring together for the first time a
series of papers about the fictive representations of Queen Elizabeth I
in literature, music and film. The papers will illuminate the
fascinating story of her numerous afterlives and their significance for
the cultural history of England, its sense of identity and psyche. Other
papers will investigate the ceremony, festivities and dance practices at
her court and will bring to life the cultural significance of this
colourful and extraordinary monarch. There will be two concerts, a
demonstration of Elizabethan dance, a recital and a book-display.
Registration is free.
