Queen and Country:
the relation between the monarch and the people
in the development of the English nation

Principal Investigator: Alessandra Petrina, University of Padova

This website is devoted to Queen Elizabeth I of England and her relation with her people. Our aim is to analyse the forms of communication employed by political power during the reign of Elizabeth, to prepare a survey of relevant criticism, and to offer new perspectives, approaching literary and non-literary texts and assessing their impact on English contemporary social life. The issues of nation and identity are the focus of our research, and here we offer a showcase, a communication link, and a discussion forum for all scholars and students working on or interested in the topic.
