Description

This session will focus on the intersections of gender, emotion and intimacy in European culture from the early to the late Middle Ages, exploring sexual deviancy in the later antique West, eunuchs in the Byzantine Empire, and gendered forms of intimacy in later medieval England. This panel reflects the research synergies between established late antique and medieval colleagues and postgraduate researchers in the Cardiff University School of History, Archaeology and Religion, embodying strengths in the study of gender and identity that are also captured within interdisciplinary networks on Families, Identities and Gender (FIG), and the School's Centres for Late Antique Religion and Culture, and the Study of Medieval Society and Culture.
