The Summer School offers activities designed to give you a chance to develop your interests, ideas and plans, in a sociable and scholarly atmosphere. You will be introduced to a range of scholars working in English and European history, literature, theatre and art history in the period c. 1350 – c. 1650.
Date: 27-29 June 2012

The Summer School will start with a lecture on the medieval and Renaissance city - exploring Jerusalem, Rome and London. We will then explore maps, manuscripts and archives and have our own tour of medieval and early modern Westminster. There will be masterclasses, seminars and tours with leading scholars in their fields.
We will discuss playhouses and visit one. We will visit the new Victoria & Albert Museum Renaissance galleries and visit several other institutions connected to London’s medieval and early modern past.
The Summer School will also include lectures by Birkbeck staff: Professor Anthony Bale, Dr Stephen Clucas, Dr Isabel Davis, Dr Adam Smyth, and Professor Sue Wiseman.
And, of course, the Summer School will end with a party.
