This Round Table Discussion, co-sponsored by King’s College London and by the Gender & Medieval Studies Group (GMS), explores the question of how and where to locate the study of gender and sexuality in the Middle Ages. We will discuss the topography of genders and sexualities in the Middle Ages across a range of disciplines and periods and we will examine how genders and sexualities are mapped discursively, linguistically, poetically, materially, and analytically.
Participants include Victoria Blud (King’s College London), Emma Campbell (University of Warwick), Emma Gatland (University of Cambridge), Eileen A. Joy (Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville), and Katherine J. Lewis (University of Huddersfield).
