Entangled Histories of Gender in the Medieval Mediterranean World
Date: Saturday, 5 May 2018
Time: 9:00 - 17:30
Venue: Sir Llew Edwards Building (the Terrace Room), The University of Queensland, St Lucia Campus, Brisbane, Queensland
This workshop will focus on gender as a product and driver of interactions in the medieval Mediterranean, especially France, Spain, Italy, North Africa and the Holy Land. Through a number of case studies, the workshop asks how gender and emotion both inform and are reflected in historical relationships between people, places, and things. It will also broadly interrogate whether the well-worn idea of gender as a category of analysis can still serve as a fruitful framework/paradigm for the transcultural, multivalent and deeply relational histories – or entangled histories – of the medieval Mediterranean.
