Distinguished Lecture by Alison Beach: "Reading the Remnants: Religious Women and the Material Turn in Medieval History"
Remnants of material culture – from excavated monastery walls to fragments of parchment books discovered in archives – are opening new windows into the everyday lives of medieval religious women. Focusing on the intersection between text and object, this lecture will present evidence for the intellectual and artistic contributions of women to the rapidly changing society of twelfth-century Europe.
Organized by Christina Warinner.
