Description

The playing of games extends beyond the temporal and spatial borders of the game space into aesthetic, ethical, cultural, and social functions. Many medieval games focus on gender; for example, games like the querrelle des femmes and demande d'amours, are gendered structures. This session seeks proposals from a variety of theoretical perspectives to showcase the relationship between medieval games and gender.
