Description

Male authors in medieval Iberia composed volumes of counsel for women in the genres of advice literature, chivalric romance, and theology. Counsel for women could seek to reinforce contemporary models of feminine virtue, but could in contrast seek to validate or legitimize alternative examples of women’s behavior and authority. For this panel we sought papers that examine how advice for women expressed or undermined the gender idea(l)s of a male-dominated social order, as well as papers that examine whether advice for women in a given context differed from that for men.
