20th May 2020, 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Professor Nicholas Canny proposes to set the seventeenth century English Puritan migration to Massachusetts in a wider context than is usually taken into account. Nicholas will argue that it was the perceived success of the Iberians both in the Americas, and in the wider world; that spurred the Dutch, the French and the English to emulate what the Spanish and Portuguese had achieved or attempted.
