Description

This session will consider the writing of political tracts in the later middle ages in England. It will consider especially those chronicles and histories written in and around the turmoils of the Wars of the Roses of the mid-Fifteenth Century, which brought an especially complex and shifting context to these works, and which should allow for an interesting, focused session.
