Tudor-Stuart England c.1485-1714: Politics, Society, Culture (HIST6509)

The course introduces students to the history of Tudor and Stuart England. A main element is politics and personage, yet just as important will be ordinary peoples' daily lives and relationships; their beliefs, values, and customs; fundamental concepts and methods used in the study of the same. Where possible, comparative consideration will be given to the British Isles and England's place therein.
