Description

This panel seeks papers that explore and excavate another way of representing the medieval era, women’s roles, and the relationship between the two. Previous studies on women’s roles in the medieval era have illustrated and problematized how the conventional understanding and common use of the word "medieval" was based on the conceptualized setting of the spatio-temporal West. This session is interested in papers that address gender, medieval studies, and the narrative split between the West and the rest of the World.
