Description

Centered on the broad themes of scandal, perception, and reputation, this course explores the many sites and sources where we can access medieval women’s voices and lived experiences by interrogating the dynamic relationship between gender and status in the past and present. Through primary source analyses, historiographical interrogations, scaffolded writing exercises, and collaborative curiosity, you will be encouraged to question whose voices and stories are privileged and why—in this class and beyond.

By the end of the semester, you will produce approximately 20-25 pages of polished, original material. Through reflection on your own writing habits, scaffolded assignments, and collaborative workshops, you will hone your critical voice and gain confidence in academic writing. This class pursues two fundamental objectives: Convey the complexities of history through the study of women and gender in late medieval Europe and cultivate your reading/writing processes.

Class Format:

Instruction is remote and a mixture of synchronous and asynchronous. Enrolled students are expected to be available remotely during scheduled class times. Course is open to remote-only students.
