Remembering the Reformation

Interdisciplinary in conception and scope, this project is a collaboration between historians (Alex Walsham and Ceri Law, University of Cambridge) and literary scholars (Brian Cummings and Bronwyn Wallace, University of York).

Remembering the Reformation is an AHRC-funded research project based at the Universities of Cambridge and York.

Interdisciplinary in conception and scope, the project is a collaboration between historians (Alex Walsham and Ceri Law, University of Cambridge) and literary scholars (Brian Cummings and Bronwyn Wallace, University of York) which aims to investigate how the Reformations were remembered, forgotten, contested and re-invented.

Over a period of three years the members of the project will work to illuminate the manner in which memories of the Reformation emerged or were created in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, as well as the complex and plural legacies such memories have left.

The project will stage a range of academic and public engagement events, including workshops, conferences and colloquia, lectures, educational workshops for children, and public exhibitions.
