Session 804: Exploring Masculinity in the Middle Ages: New Directions in Gender History - A Round Table Discussion

Tuesday 2 July 2019, 16.30-18.00

Sponsor:Society for Medieval Feminist Scholarship
Organiser:Erin Jordan, Department of History, Old Dominion University, Virginia
Moderator/Chair:Roberta Magnani, Centre for Medieval & Early Modern Research (MEMO), Swansea University

This round table discussion, organized by SMFS, is inspired by the work of Michelle Armstrong-Partida, the recipient of the Best First Book of Feminist Scholarship in 2018. The focus of the discussion will be on engaging in a dialogue on masculinity in the Middle Ages broadly speaking, surveying the current state of the field, introducing new scholarship, or shedding light on populations or areas of life still requiring scholarly attention.

Participants include Michelle Armstrong-Partida (University of Texas, El Paso), Katherine J. Lewis (University of Huddersfield), Stefan Meysman (Universiteit Gent), and Jacqueline Murray (University of Guelph, Ontario).
