Description

Building on Sharon Farmer’s pioneering work on monastic and female communities, this session explores the processes by which communal identity and social norms were created, defended, and manipulated in medieval France. It hopes not only to reconfirm the importance of Farmer’s work, but to offer new pathways for future scholarship on monastic and women’s communities and on the gendered nature of power.
