Description

"Medieval Women's History, Past, Present and Future" will include papers by scholars who have been influenced or inspired by Professor Berman and/or her work on medieval women. These papers might reflect upon how our understanding of medieval women, secular and religious, has changed over the last few decades, or discuss new approaches that have produced a more inclusive and accurate narrative as it pertains to medieval women. They might also consider the future trajectory of the field, considering the various questions that remain unanswered in our attempt to fully appreciate the position of women in the medieval past.
