Description

This panel will thus explore how women around the Mediterranean performed rulership from myriad positionalities. We aim to provoke discussion concerning the political impact of women who participated in rulership in distinct ways, as well as the means through which this was expressed over time. The panel will also take up the question of whether agency remains a useful category of analysis when approaching the roles of women who enacted many of the fundamental mechanisms of composite rulership.
