"Unmasquing Prince Henry"


It is well known that Henry, Prince of Wales (1594-1612) was central to the Stuart court masque and much of London's civic pageantry toward the end of the first decade of James I. Consequently, critical interest in Henry's performance of majesty is too frequently confined to a select few authors and literary modes. Papers unmasquing Prince Henry are sought for a panel to be proposed for the Sixteenth Century Studies Conference in Salt Lake City, UT, October 26-9, 2006. Interdisciplinary approaches examining Henry and his court in terms of childhood and family life, political or social history, patronage, sport and recreation, religious practice, fashion and portraiture, architecture and gardening, science and technology, adventuring and colonization, and the prince's autopsy and funeral are especially welcome. Please send brief abstracts or detailed enquiries to by March 1, 2006.
