Description

In the 2012 Medieval Congress, we had two well-attended sessions exploring the appropriation and construction of women warriors in medieval Eurasia. The interdisciplinary and East-West approaches of these two panels were well-received and generated much interests to continue the discussion and exchange. This 2013 session is the continuation of this exploration.
