Elizabeth I on Film: Kalamazoo, May 9-12, 2013
Our panel in 2013 will focus on representations of Elizabeth I in the classic and more recent film narratives. In the last decade alone, the image of Elizabeth I on film has ranged from Dame Judi Dench's aged but energetic queen to Cate Blanchett's preternaturally youthful 55 year old monarch to the adolescent princess played by Laoise Murray on _The Tudors_. This panel will seek to explore the general trajectories of representing Elizabeth I on screen as well as identify and analyze the developments, continuities, and significance of these representations in the 21st century.
This session is sponsored by Queen Elizabeth I Society.
