Call for Papers
Women Warriors and Women in War in the Middle Ages
This panel intends to explore the involvement, participation, influence,
and effects of women in medieval warfare. We encourage submissions not
only on the topic of women warriors, but ones that explore other ways
women interacted with warfare. We hope to consider a wide variety of
methodologies and disciplines covering the time period of c. 500 to c.
1500. Ideally this panel will explore medieval women's participation in
warfare and its acceptability (or lack thereof) in an activity that
was considered by contemporaries to be predominantly masculine.
Please send all submissions and questions to Colleen Slater
). The deadline for submissions is September 15, 2007.
