Often, we see medieval queens in movement: between families, between lands, between status, between the lines. This strand seeks to think with and through the theme of ‘borders’, to consider how medieval and premodern queenship (understood in broad terms) operates and is set in motion by queens themselves and those around them. This round table discussion, which concludes our ‘Queens on the Threshold’ strand, brings together scholars from various career stages to discuss the questions raised by their own work and how to consider queens and royal women within a broader framework and network of international relations.

Participants include Juliana Amorim Goskes (New York University), Theresa Earenfight (Seattle University), Tracy Chapman Hamilton (Virginia Commonwealth University), Elena Woodacre (University of Winchester), and Barbara Yorke (University of Winchester).
