Dr Suzannah Lipscomb

Dr Suzannah Lipscomb MA, MSt, DPhil (Oxon), F.R.Hist.S. is an historian, author, broadcaster, and award-winning academic.

Suzannah is Senior Lecturer in Early Modern History and Fellow of the New College of the Humanities, London, and a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society.

Her research focuses on the sixteenth century, both on English and French history. She works on Henry VIII and the early Tudor court, and is especially interested in the intersection of religious, gender, political, social, and psychological history. This has led her to write about Henry VIII’s annus horribilis, 1536; Anne Boleyn’s fall; and the creation of Henry VIII’s last will and testament. She is also interested in religion, gender, and sexuality in sixteenth-century France, on which she is currently writing, and has additionally published on heritage and public history, writing a regular column for History Today that explores the role of history outside the academy.
