Lecture: The 'Straunge Diversitie of Rayment of the Countreth of Hispayne’ of Catherine of Aragon
Thursday, October 10: 5:00 p.m.
Professor Theresa Earenfight (Professor of History and Director, Women and Gender Studies, Seattle University) explores how the English reacted to the Spanish princess Catherine of Aragon when she appeared in England in 1501 to marry Arthur, the heir to the throne. Reconstructing this event through the lens of material culture (including clothing) as well as textual sources, Earenfight opens up larger questions about gender, race, and nation at a formative moment in the European past, and offers insights into how groups define what it means to be foreign and alien.
Presented by the departments of Interdisciplinary Humanities, Art and Art History, English, Gender & Queer Studies, History, as well as the James Dolliver National Endowment for the Humanities.
