Abstract

A hybrid format: brief papers + roundtable discussion among panellists. Papers will be brief (12-15 minutes each), leaving time for 15-20 minutes of roundtable discussion among the panellists before entertaining questions from the floor. The goal is to present archive-based research on 12th-century women and to provide context and analysis through dialogue. All the medieval women to be discussed were part of the Anglo-Norman and Angevin world.
