The murder took place before Henry VII’s death in 1509. It involved government corruption, ‘national security’ actions, illegal searches and spying on citizens (sound familiar?). The murder will be solved by Mark R. Horowitz, a U of C alumnus, with your help! Dr. Horowitz will also show intriguing parallels between Tudor society and 21st-century America.

Elected a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, Dr. Horowitz was most recently a Visiting Professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago and taught an upper-level history course entitled ‘The Tudor Kings’. His scholarly publications relate to early-Tudor administration, finance, governance and law. He has presented academic papers throughout the U.S., England, Portugal and Ireland. He has used his ‘historical perspective’ of current events as a weekly syndicated columnist for UPI, a weekly radio commentator for an NBC affiliate and a Guest Columnist for USA TODAY.

Registration is requested by April 13, 2015.
