Women & Community in the Ancien Régime: Traditional and New Media
This three-day conference investigates how women participated in and contributed to different kinds of community in medieval and early modern Europe. Featuring presentations based on texts and images in traditional manuscript and print format, as well as work that employs new technology and media projects, the conference will be interdisciplinary, and will consider the function and importance of female communities in the natural and social sciences, religion, literature, history, music, and fine arts. The conference is sponsored by MARGOT, a long-term research project devoted to publishing fully searchable editions of texts from the French Middle Ages and the Early Modern period.
