31.05.2018 – 01.06.2018: Workshop – „Between Women: Female Networks, Kinships and Power“

Eine Veranstaltung des SFB 1167 im Rahmen des Teilprojekts „Weibliches Charisma. Figurationen von Macht und Herrschaft in England und Frankreich (700–1500)“ (Leitung: Prof. Dr. Irina A. Dumitrescu, English Medieval Studies)

Plakat_Workshop_Between WomenForged by blood, friendship, religious fellowship and political affinity, women’s relationships played essential roles in constructing women’s power in the pre-modern world. Yet we still know little about relationships between women, and the networks of political and religious influence such relationships created. This international workshop brings together scholars from the fields of art history, history, literature and religion to explore women’s biological, religious, secular, imaginary and historical kinships. We will consider how women transmitted their power to other women through time and across space, and how women’s networks were imagined, constructed and performed. Presentations focus on sources from Britain, Central Asia, Ethiopia, France, Germany, Iberia, Iran, spanning the sixth to seventeenth centuries.

Please note: Deviating from the folder, on June 1st the programme will start half an hour later at 10am. Instead of Roberta Magnani, Karen Dempsey (University of Reading) will give a paper titled "Gundrada and Isabel: a feminist perspective of castle-studies".
