Description

As an historian of medieval culture, Joan Cadden has crafted detailed documentary analyses that synthesize philosophical, theological, and medical ideas, illuminated by cultural studies and feminist theory. Such works as "The Meaning of Sex Differences in the Middle Ages" and "Nothing Natural is Shameful" have created touchstones for investigating gender and same-sex practices in the Middle Ages. SSHMA's panel discussion would investigate how Cadden's studies have transformed the historiography of sexuality; how historians draw upon her work in their own research; and emerging areas of inquiry that may challenge/surpass her contributions. The panel invites historians and scholars in allied disciplines to the table.
