Description

Studies of women and gender in medieval Iberia have not only explored the experiences of women and conceptions of gender roles, but also illuminated a wide range of other topics, including interfaith relations, economy, legal culture, and the process of maintaining conquests. These sessions, organized in memory of the late Simon Barton, invite scholars to present exciting new research on the topic of women and gender, broadly defined, across the Iberian Peninsula. Papers considering intersections between gender and power, as Barton so effectively accomplished in his final book, are particularly encouraged, as are papers that place gender in the context of interfaith relations in medieval Iberia.
