Elizabethan England and the Islamic World

Elizabethan England and the Islamic World

7PM, Thursday 13 January 2022

Join award-winning writer and historian Professor Jerry Brotton and journalist Shafi Musaddique for an evening exploring Tudor links with the Islamic world.

The Elizabethan era saw a flowering of cultural and political exchanges with the Muslim world, as England forged new relationships with non-Christian allies – from merchants, diplomats and adventurers to Islam’s influence on the works of Shakespeare.

Chaired by journalist Shafi Musaddique, this fascinating event includes a talk from award-winning writer and historian Professor Jerry Brotton, author of This Orient Isle, following by a Q&A.

Produced in association with the British Library.

This is an online event. Tickets may be booked to watch on the British Library platform (online) either live or within 48 hours on catch up.  Viewing links will be sent out shortly before the event. The event will be live captioned.
