have explored the history and culture of 16th and 17th
century England but also a good bit of film theory and cultural
studies. Since her reign ended in 1603, Elizabeth Tudor, a.k.a.
Queen Elizabeth I, has come to define our vision of what it
means to be a queen. She still reigns supreme in popular culture
with a made-for-television mini-series on HBO in 2006 raking in
numerous awards and two big screen films about her slated for
release in 2007. Why do people still debate about her reign?
What is the fascination with this woman who broke all the rules
for her period and became an unintentional feminist? We have
discussed, debated, and analyzed all of these elements and
questions! This website culminates our class by looking at
Elizabeth Tudor as cultural icon and enduring "text" on which
various authors and authors have "written." This website
exists to help direct folks who are interested in Elizabeth
Tudor based on their reading or viewing of various popular texts
to learn more about the "real" Elizabeth. This is only a
starting point, and we are indebted to all of the online Tudor
fans who have already created many of the resources to which we
will direct you.
