Anne Boleyn: Feminist Icon or Femme Fatale?

Robyn Atcheson, BA, MA, PhD

Half-day session on Saturday 18 May, 10.00 am to 1.00 pm

Perhaps the most infamous of the wives of Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn was beheaded after only three years as Queen, yet she has continued to fascinate throughout the centuries. This class will take a deep dive into the legacy of Anne Boleyn and how she has been remembered. We will look at original source material from the Tudor era and track how writers and historians have cast Anne as both a Protestant martyr and an evil witch. The class will also involve looking at media representations of Anne in film and TV, watching clips of key depictions and discussing what way we view the many fictionalised Annes.

Fee £17.00 (no concession)

This class will take place on QUB campus
