Friday: Peter Marshall on Protestants and Fairies

An event in the University of Exeter English Visiting Speaker Series (Cornwall Campus):

Professor Peter Marshall will be speaking on ‘Protestants and Fairies in Early Modern England’ on Friday 7 March at 4.00pm in the Board Room, Tremough House. 

Peter Marshall is Director of Graduate Studies in History at the University of Warwick. His research is primarily in religious belief and practice in early modern England, and particularly in rituals and beliefs surrounding the dead, focusing on changing perceptions of the afterlife, revenants, forms of commemoration, and the enactment of memory. His published work includes Beliefs and the Dead in Reformation England (2002), Religious Identities in Henry VIII’s England (2006), and Mother Leakey and the Bishop: A Ghost Story (2007).

The talk will be video-linked to the Streatham Campus.  For more information contact Nick Groom.

The event (in Cornwall only) will be followed by an informal wine reception.
