'Imagining the Cromwells': a talk by Miranda Malins
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Admission: ££5 Adults, £4 Students/Friends of the Museum
Location: Via Zoom
For the third lecture of this year's Cromwell Lecture Series, the Cromwell Museum is delighted to welcome author Miranda Malins.
Can fiction truly bring the past to life? How does writing fiction compare with writing history and where do the two meet? Miranda Malins describes how she recreated Cromwell's Protectoral court in her debut novel The Puritan Princess and discusses how a fictional approach enables her to confront popular myths to present a fresh picture of Cromwell, the public and private man.
Dr Miranda Malins is a writer and historian specialising in the history of Oliver Cromwell, his family and the politics of the Interregnum period following the Civil Wars. She studied at Cambridge University, leaving with a PhD, and continues to speak at conferences and publish journal articles and book reviews. The Puritan Princess is her first novel.
This is part of a four part lecture series on the Civil War period. Discounted combined tickets for all four talks can be purchased at: the Cromwell Lecture Series (click on this title for the link).
The other talks are by Paul Lay on Providence Lost: Cromwell's Western Design, Andrea Zuvich on Sex and Sexuality in Stuart Britain and Steve Ellis & Mark Beattie-Edwards on the Wreck of the London.
