Medieval and Early Modern Women
The cultural construction of femininity in deep chronological perspective. A study of the representation, and sometimes self-representation, of individual figures or types of mythographic, legendary and historical significance, as, for example, Medea, Mary Magdalene or virgin martyrs. The central concern is with written representation, but appropriate comparisons will be made with the visual arts and historical actuality.
