Thursday 24 August/ Friday 25 August 2006

The deadline for proposals and the duration of this interdisciplinary
conference which aims to explore the ritual and rhetoric of queenship in late
medieval and early modern England have been extended.

We hope to encourage debate on the image and representation of queens in a
variety of genres, and on the cultural and political narratives of queenship.

Topics might include but are not limited to:

the representation of queens in early modern drama;

texts and textiles produced by queens;

queenship and prose romance;

portraiture;

the ritual construction of queenship;

queenship, identity and power;

holy and sainted queens;

royal motherhood;

queens as intercessors and patrons;

queens in translation.

We are delighted to announce that our keynote speaker will be Professor Lisa
Hopkins (Sheffield Hallam University). Our two plenary speakers will be Dr
Joanna Laynesmith (author of The Last Medieval Queens) and Dr Jacqueline Eales
(Canterbury Christ Church University).
