The English Department’s Patricia Matthew has a new article on about a prequel series to the popular Netflix series “Bridgerton.” In it, she discusses how “Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story” intersects with and departs from history.


The season’s brilliance lies not just in what happens over the course of the six episodes, but in the questions it prompts about race, regency, and representation in popular culture as a whole.
