No Place Like Home?
19 November, 2020, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This is an online event.
As part of events scheduled in late 2020 and early 2021, to mark the 400th anniversary of the voyage of the Mayflower to Boston, Massachusetts, this pair of talks, chaired by Prof Steph Hemelryck-Donald, will give an overview of ideas of home in the medieval and early modern period.
The first, by Dr Hollie Morgan, will compare who was considered part of the community and who might struggle to have a home for significant social interaction to take place. In the light of insights from the first talk, the second will offer insights into the Boston Pilgrims and in particular into the lesser-known activities of their religious descendants in North America, whose success in making a home where they could worship freely did not prevent them from persecuting other groups, including those who also arrived at the continent hoping for freedom and a fresh start.
