Women Medievalists on Medieval Women: A “State-of-the-Field” Symposium and Reception
March 20, 2024
5:30 PM ET
The Grolier Club
47 East 60th St, NYC
Join The American Trust for the British Library (ATBL) and scholars of medieval studies for a “state-of-the-field” symposium at the Grolier Club to discuss current scholarship by female-identifying medievalists on subjects related to the lives, patronage, and creative practice of medieval women.
This symposium celebrates the British Library’s longstanding support for scholarship on women’s experiences during the early modern period, notably and upcoming Library exhibition on medieval women, and the Library’s Joanna and Graham Barker-funded Medieval and Renaissance women digitization project (which successfully concluded in 2023 with the digitization of 93 volumes, 219 charters, and 25 rolls connected to the lives of European women between the years 1100 and 1600 C.E.).
The symposium will be moderated by Martha Driver.
