  6. Week 4: A British Queen 35 items
    This week we will discuss the extent to which Queen Victoria stood as a symbol of Britain or ‘Britishness’. Contemporary discussion of the Victorian monarchy often betrayed an Anglo-centric bias and while some accounts suggest that this is simply about (an uncritical) choice of language, certain episodes (e.g., but not exclusively, the John Brown affair) revealed more substantial cultural and political tensions or rivalries that often undercut discussion of and attitudes towards the Crown. This seminar will look specifically at Queen Victoria’s position and reception in Scotland and Ireland.

  9. Week 9: A media Queen 2 items
    Recent research has stressed the importance of studying how Victoria’s and the monarchy’s image was constructed and negotiated. Victoria has been described as the ‘first media monarch’ and this has been taken to say something about the institution of monarchy becoming more ‘modern’. This seminar will assess recent literature on this subject and consider the nature of the ‘spun’ image. Within this there will also be some attention to using printed materials such as newspapers to assess public opinion and popular reaction to events / people / episodes, etc. For this week’s seminar you are asked to consider the primary sources with a particular view to examining how and to what possible effect images or ideas about the monarchy were constructed and either projected out by the monarchy or reflected back onto it (ie who made the image(s)?). Think about the issues raised above and look at some of the secondary reading below (eg Plunkett) It may be useful to bear the following questions or points in mind: 1. what it is/where it came from 2. whether there is anything significant about the authorship 3. what aspect of the monarchy and media is represented in the source? 4. What does the source tells us about that issue? 5. how you think it might be used in historical research? 6. any other points you think important You are asked to refer to the primary sources used throughout the course in preparing for this seminar. You will be asked to prepare, in groups, a short presentation on one of the following themes: 1. How did the monarchy use the media to project an image? What sort of image(s) was/were constructed? 2. How and what sort of images were projected onto the monarchy? By whom and why? (eg politicians? Cultural commentators? The press?) 3. How did media images of the monarchy change over time? 4. How did the public respond to media images of the monarchy? (And how do we measure this?)
