Bastille Society lecture series ends with a flourish

Tuesday 30 April 2019

Professor Susan Doran’s work on Elizabeth I in the Early Modern Period is well known amongst the Pre-U Historians, so it was a great honour for the Bastille Society to welcome her to Hodgson Hall on 26th April to give the final lecture of the year.

Her lecture covered Queen Elizabeth’s Religious Settlement and it was hugely beneficial to those just about to take their Pre-U exam. It was great to see so many historians asking questions and engaging with what Professor Doran discussed in her hugely interesting overview.

The Bastille Society would like to thank Professor Doran for travelling up from Jesus College, Oxford and delivering such a crucial lecture.

As the last Bastille Society lecture of the Academic year, Ebrahim Jamshid and I would also like to say a huge thank you to all the historians who have attended the lectures throughout this academic year. It has been a pleasure to work with the History Faculty and so many of the top UK university historians.
