This one-day symposium marks the publication of a new collection of essays about the life and cultural impact of Robert Devereux, second earl of Essex.  It brings together scholars who have been involved with the collection and whose research continues to engage with some of the issues and questions raised by their work for the volume.  The papers will consider a selection of the diverse visual and textual manifestations of Essex and his circle in poetry and portraiture as well as in texts produced by the earl himself.

 

There is no registration fee and refreshments will be provided, but we do require you to e-mail us in advance to book a place:
