The idea of a spin doctor is nothing new. Many Tudor and Stuart monarchs were adept at using the media channels they possessed to enforce their control and create a positive image. This course explores the ways in which prophecy, propaganda and portraits were used by Henry VIII, Elizabeth I, James I and Charles I, and how the people fought back with their own propaganda in the English Civil Wars. It is anticipated that this course will be held at the King’s Manor.
