Margaret's Contribution to Festivals Research

Margaret's Contribution to Festivals Research MARGARET SHEWRING The invitation from Richard Ralph to write a tribute to Margaret M.

Just a few weeks before she died, Margaret sent me her completed paper for the conference which was read at the occasion by Professor Richard Cooper. It was a skilful comparison between royal entries into Coventry and entries in France in the sixteenth century and was much appreciated by all those present. I have begun my tribute with this because, for me, it encapsulates Margaret’s energy, scholarship and determination as well as her enthusiasm for, and loyalty to, the projects in which I was privileged to work alongside her for more than twenty years.

Abstract

MARGARET SHEWRING The invitation from Richard Ralph to write a tribute to Margaret M. McGowan arrived the day before the start of a conference that I was co-organising in Coventry on ‘Celebrations, Communities and Performances: festival occasions in Coventry and the surrounding region from the fifteenth to the seventeenth centuries and their legacy’. Just a few weeks before she died, Margaret sent me her completed paper for the conference which was read at the occasion by Professor Richard Cooper. It was a skilful comparison between royal entries into Coventry and entries in France in the sixteenth century and was much appreciated by all those present. I have begun my tribute with this because, for me, it encapsulates Margaret’s energy, scholarship and determination as well as her enthusiasm for, and loyalty to, the projects in which I was privileged to work alongside her for more than twenty years. Each of these projects extended her extraordinary research on choreography and dance into the wider sphere of Renaissance and Early Modern courtly culture and their role in the celebration and affirmation of, as well as the negotiation of, power, influence and pan-European social, economic and cultural relations.
