THE ELIZABETHAN REFORMATION




Seminar Tutor: Adam Morton, Room 317. Tel 024 76 523452

email Adam.Morton@warwick.ac.uk

Seminar times: Friday 1.00-3.00
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES:
This Special Subject explores the impact and significance of religious developments in England in the reign of Elizabeth I (1558-1603), with the aim of showing how they transformed society, culture and politics at both national and local levels. It was during these decades that England finally became a ‘Protestant country’, though the process was controversial and unstable, producing dissent and rebellion, as well as a fair degree of de facto pluralism and some qualified toleration of difference.
Students will be expected to engage with the legal, liturgical and doctrinal aspects of this transformation, but also to assess it as a process of cultural transition, involving accommodation and negotiation between rulers and ruled, and between neighbours. The recent historiography of the Elizabethan Reformation (and of its sub-fields like Puritanism and Catholicism) has been particularly lively and contentious, and as the module develops, students will increasingly familiarize themselves with this literature, and demonstrate a capacity to assess it critically.
Students will also be introduced to a range of different types of primary source - literary and polemical texts, administrative records of church and state, private letters and memoirs - which students will learn to interrogate and contextualize effectively. It is expected that the majority of the students on the module will deploy the skills and knowledge acquired in the researching and writing of a dissertation linked to the themes of the module.

INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES:





  • a sound knowledge of the main events and themes of the Elizabethan Reformation

  • an understanding of historiographical developments and debates, and an ability critically to assess them

  • enhanced presentational and debating skills

  • confidence in the techniques of independent research and study, including the evaluation and deployment of primary source materials

  • use of information technology in research and learning


TEACHING AND LIBRARY
Seminars will 2 hours in length, and will take place in room H3.43 unless otherwise indicated.
Reading lists are provided below, but please get in touch with me as a matter of urgency if you experience any difficulty getting hold of sufficient reading materials for seminars or essays. Items which I know to be available as e-books are marked [E] in the lists. Don’t forget to check for electronic copies of journal articles through the Library’s electronic resources page, as well as or in addition to looking for hard copies in the periodicals section of the Library. To make sure there is maximum access to the reading materials, usual rules of courtesy and good sense apply. Return books to the library as soon as you’ve finished with them. Put journals back in their places on the shelf. Try to set up sharing networks with others in the seminar.
MODULE REQUIREMENTS
i) Non-assessed essays: two non-assessed essay (c. 2000 words) to be handed in to me by Monday of week 7 of the autumn and spring terms. If you are linking the dissertation to the module, a 2000 word dissertation proposal can be substituted for the non-assessed essay.
ii) Assessed essays and exams: either a three-hour exam paper (1 unit) or (for students not linking the dissertation to the module) a two-hour exam paper (½ unit) and one essay of 4500 words (½ unit).
There is the opportunity of attaching your final-year dissertation module to this module.
For assessed essay deadlines, see the Year 3 Handbook. Some of the seminar questions provide a suitable basis for long essay titles, but everyone will have the opportunity to discuss and agree a title – whether for long essay or dissertation - with me.
