Wanderings through Post-Reformation England.

The third in the Autumn 2015 series of Masterclasses will be delivered by Robert Tittler, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of History at Concordia University.

Professor Tittler characterises his career as unconventional. This Masterclass will take as a starting point an account of his wanderings through successive historiographical phases between the mid-1960s and the present day, e.g., ‘The Age of Notestein and Neale’ whence he began, the ‘Age of Elton’, and thereafter sojourns in the eras of, e.g., Hoskins, Brunskill & Clifton-Taylor; Clark & Slack; Records of Early English Drama (REED), and Wrightson amongst others. This tour is intended to give insight into his inspirations, some moments of “serendipitious good fortune”, and generally give younger scholars an impression of “where and how … some of those who have tilled the fields of Early Modern English History these 50 years have found rows to hoe”.  Some reading materials will be circulated in advance.

Masterclasses are free to attend but advance registration is required, and some preparatory reading material will be circulated in advance of this masterclass.  To register, please use the contact form on this website.
