Mayflower Lecture Online: Transatlantic Rebellions
Time and Location
About The Event
We have another presentation from a panel representing the University of East Anglia hosted by Anastasia Stylianou. She is currently a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow researching in the school of History. Anastasia will host separate talks:
Danny Buck BA , Oxons MA - A Transatlantic Civil War? New England connections to the Parliamentary cause in East Anglia.
Anthony Maggs MA - A Tale of Two Roberts: Kett’s Rebellion and the Origins of Separatist Culture in Norfolk
To celebrate the Mayflower’s 400th anniversary, Anthony has recently examined the ideological similarities shared between the Mayflower Pilgrims and the various laymen who participated in the popular Kett’s Rebellion (1549). By exploring these connections, he hopes to show how long-lasting grievances between common laymen and local and state officials encouraged various Norfolk citizens to adopt the English Separatist tradition by 1620 as they believed their natural rights were being illegitimately eroded.
There will be the opportunity to ask questions of the panel at the end of the talks.
This is a FREE event but donations would be appreciated. You must register:
This presentation is part of our Mayflower 400 in Harleston Lecture series where are running monthly lectures on the third Thursday of each month. Look out for future presentations.
