Lectures to explore Queen's role
FROM the Queen's dresses to the historical importance of her Diamond Jubilee, Bristol University is organising two special lectures to celebrate the monarch's 60 years on the throne.
The two lectures are free and open to the public.
Professor Jutta Weldes kicks off the celebrations at M shed on May 9 with Dressing up and Queening it: Queen Elizabeth II, dress and British public diplomacy – a look at how the Queen's dresses have represented the monarchy and the country.
Then one of Britain's leading historians will put this summer's festivities into context on May 10 with a lecture at the Wills Memorial Building entitled Sixty years a Queen: The Diamond Jubilee in historical perspective.

Professor Sir David Cannadine, currently based at the University of Princeton in the USA, will compare the celebrations for Queen Elizabeth II in 2012 with how Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee was marked in 1897.
Professor Cannadine is well-known for his media commentary and books about modern Britain from 1800 onwards, with a particular focus on the British aristocracy, issues of class and the themes of cultural expression and ceremony both within Britain and its empire.
Sixty years a Queen: The Diamond Jubilee in historical perspective, will begin at 6pm on May 10 in the Great Hall, Wills Memorial Building.
The lecture is free but booking is required at www.bristol.ac.uk/jubilee-lecture.
