Universities Week 2014

Ideas of Foreignness in an age of Expansion

During Universities Week 2014, student actors performed an adaptation of a play written over 400 years ago for Queen Elizabeth I at the Natural History Museum, London.

The play forms part of Professor Matthew Dimmock’s research and explores the meaning of foreignness at a time when England’s position in the world was changing.
