Join award-winning writer and historian Professor Jerry Brotton and journalist Shafi Musaddique for an evening exploring Tudor links with the Islamic world.
THIS EVENT WILL NOW TAKE PLACE ONLINE.
This is an online only event hosted on the British Library platform. Bookers will be sent a viewing link shortly before the event and will be able to watch at any time for 48 hours after the start time.
The Elizabethan era saw a flowering of cultural and political exchanges with the Muslim world, as England forged new relationships with non-Christian allies – from merchants, diplomats and adventurers to Islam’s influence on the works of Shakespeare.
Chaired by journalist Shafi Musaddique, this fascinating event includes a talk from award-winning writer and historian Professor Jerry Brotton, author of This Orient Isle, following by a Q&A.
Produced in association with HistFest.
