Samantha Rogers

Samantha Rogers is a fifth year Ph.D. student in late medieval and early modern British history. Her research interests center on debates of political legitimacy and religious authority that lay at the heart of the English Reformation. Her dissertation, tentatively titled “The Royal Supremacy in Action: Public Politics of the Henrician Reformation, 1537-1540,” draws together various modes of political communication, from printed propaganda to public executions, to explore the ways in which power was asserted, performed, and contested during a period of political and religious transition. She is studying with Peter Lake.
