Using contemporary 17th century publications Dr Polly Ha (EUA) will show how opinions were divided on the Pilgrims’ exit from England and Europe-rather like the Brexit debate. She will be supported by research students for a Q&A session on the positive and negative reactions to the Pilgrim’s decision to leave.
