Description

This panel seeks to explore the relationship between bodies, material objects, and spiritual discourse and practice. How does gender affect the relationship between material objects such as bodies, manuscripts, and relics and the spiritual ideas tied to or communicated through these objects? What can a gendered approach to studies of materiality reveal about medieval literature, history, and religion? This panel will take a multidisciplinary approach to these questions, drawing on manifold methodologies in order to address these questions as fully as possible.
