Faculty and Staff Notes
Ellen Wurtzel Interviewed
Ellen Wurtzel, associate professor of history, was interviewed for the Royal Studies Journal blog about her article "The Joyous Entry of Albert and Isabella in Lille: History, Conquest and the Making of Belgium” which appeared in a December 2016 issue of the Royal Studies Journal (RSJ) called Taking Possession: Royal Entries in the Early Modern Period. The piece was developed from a paper she delivered at the 2015 Sixteenth-Century Studies annual conference and investigates the way that the city’s history was used to establish loyalty to the prince and envision a new empire in the midst of war and religious conflict.
