Women's Strategies of Memory: Representations in Literature and Art
Call for Papers for panel(s) proposal at Leeds IMC 2018, 2-5 July
Memory, in the middle ages as now, was widely accessible to women as means of personal and political influence. Scholarship on the strategic and technical employment of memory in the middle ages has principally explored men’s practices. This panel focuses on representations of medieval women’s deliberate and strategic uses of memory in literature, art, and historical narrative.
