The Queen Elizabeth I Society aims to bring together scholars interested in the Queen and in the intellectual, artistic, cultural, and religious life of her court so that we can share ideas, develop professional friendships, and work together on collaborative projects. We welcome specialists in art, history, literature, music, politics, philosophy, and all other relevant fields. Membership is free.
Our 2014 meeting will be in Tucson, AZ from 3-5 April 2014. See our CFP page for information on how to submit an abstract.
