The Ritual and Rhetoric of Queenship, 1250-1650
Canterbury Christ Church University
Thursday 24 August 2006
This interdisciplinary conference aims to explore the ritual and rhetoric of
queenship in late medieval and early modern England.
We hope to encourage debate on the image and representation of queens, and on
the cultural and political narratives of queenship. Possible themes might
the ritual construction of queenship;
queenship, identity and power;
holy and sainted queens;
queens as intercessors and patrons;
queens in translation.
