Event description: 

The Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library Mondays at Beinecke series presents Hannah Oblak, senior in Pauli Murray College and cultural history major: 

“Anne Boleyn - Life and Legend .”

This talk is in conjunction with the new student research exhibit, “Anne Boleyn: Life and Legend” curated by Hannah Oblak ’24 in the Sterling Memorial Library Exhibition Corridor, 120 High Street.

“Anne Boleyn: Life and Legend” explores what is known and imagined about this influential and controversial woman—from her days in the Tudor court as Henry VIII’s ill-fated queen to the present day, when the fascination with her persists in art, literature, and film. As the curator notes, Boleyn is a mystery from the start, due to the few but unreliable portraits of her that exist.

Oblak is a senior in Pauli Murray College from New York City. She is a cultural history major with a passion for art history and early modern European history. Hannah has always been fascinated by the Tudor period and the figure of Anne Boleyn. She is excited to share her work, as well as the magic of the Yale archives, with the wider university community.
