Overview

It is now over twenty years since revisionist history began to transform our understanding of early modern England. In Remapping Early Modern England Kevin Sharpe proposes a new cultural turn in the study of the English Renaissance state. In contrast to the narrow definitions and debates of both revisionist and postrevisionist historians, he urges a broader interdisciplinary approach to the texts of authority, their performance and reception. This collection will help refigure our understanding of the history and politics of the period and the materials and methods of its study.
