This volume is a collection of papers emerging from a symposium held at the University of Bristol in December 2008, entitled ‘Tudorism: Historical Imagination and the Appropriation of the Sixteenth Century’. This introductory chapter begins by recalling the different ways in which the sixteenth century has been positioned in relation to, and has thereby implicitly contributed towards constructions of, the medieval, or Gothic, or premodern, or pre-industrial, or dark-age, or feudal, or primitive, or traditional, depending on one's choice of terminology. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.
