Forthcoming Events

Moorish Ambassador to Elizabeth I

Fictional Embassies

The date and time are still provisional but the next meeting of the UCL Early Modern Staff-Student Reading Group proposes to discuss Timothy Hampton's Fictions of Embassy (Cornell 2009). We very much hope the author will be able to join us afterwards and answer questions about his book. Note that this event is for UCL staff and students only. A wine reception will be held afterwards.
