About

This site is home to HIST 332: Tudor England J-Term 2019. On our journey, we will walk in the footsteps of queens and kings, knights, playwrights, artists, peasants, merchants, reformers and explorers as we uncover the history, politics and culture of England during the “Golden Age” of the Tudor monarchies (1485-1603). We will explore major museums, galleries and cathedrals in London, visit the courts of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I at Greenwich, Hampton Court and Windsor, travel to significant sites connected to the Reformation in the university town of Oxford, explore the scenic beauty of the Pembrokeshire coast in Wales, and study (and watch!) contemporary productions of Shakespeare’s plays in Stratford-Upon-Avon. We will immerse ourselves in British culture, food, and landscape to better understand why the Tudor period was such a definitive moment in the history of England and the world.
