Politics, Patronage and Prostitution: The Experiences of Medieval Women

EVENT – Politics, Patronage and Prostitution: The Experiences of Medieval Women

Thursday 3rd April – Sunday 6th April 2014

EVENT

Christ Church, Oxford is offering a unique chance to explore the experiences of women during the medieval period. Despite the undeniable dominance of a patriarchal view in the medieval world and the lack of an independent legal identity for women, the survival of a huge quantity of source material about them in all sections of society has made it possible to reconstruct their experiences – whether they were queens, nobles, urban dwellers or nuns.

This fantastic four day event will be held at Christ Church, Oxford and is packed with talks from leading academics such as Dr Rowena E. Archer, Dr Helen Castor, Dr Martin Ingram, Dr Hannah Skoda and Professor Caroline Barron.
