We are a Happy Company: The Culture of Women’s Movements in Wales

Neil Evans is an honorary research fellow in Welsh history at Cardiff and Bangor universities. His published work includes several studies of women’s politics in Wales. He was also a researcher on 'Project Grace’, the widely used collection of teaching materials in Welsh women’s history, which is currently being updated and digitised to increase its accessibility. He was joint editor of Llafur: The Journal of Welsh People’s History from 1994 to 2010, a position he shared with Ursula Masson from 2003 to 2008.

The lecture focuses on the 1913 Welsh participation in the suffrage pilgrimage of 1913, locating that event against a background of women’s use of public space in the Late Victorian and Edwardian eras. This is used as the basis for some thoughts on the nature of participation in women’s movements in the early twentieth century.

Call for papers - Representing the Tudors: an interdisciplinary conference

July 10, 2015 July 11, 2015

Treforest Campus, University of South Wales

Mary Tudor and Charles Brandron This conference aims to bring together scholars working in a variety of fields to encourage dialogue between different perspectives and methodologies when engaging with the question of “representing the Tudors.”

The Tudors are more popular now than ever before: appropriations and representations of the Tudor and Elizabethan past are a major part of today’s culture. Henry VIII and Elizabeth I are two of Britain’s most potent cultural icons, manifested for instance in the large number of visitors to historical sites linked to these two famous monarchs, and the number of novels in which they feature. Tudor images, ideas, narratives, adaptations, and re-imaginings are found aplenty in popular culture, literature, the arts, and the media. Their appeal is wide-ranging and varied, manifested among other things in the countless blog and special interest sites devoted to them online, and in the vast number of books published on various aspects of Tudor history and culture.
