Gender and Transgression in the Middle Ages
Date: 3rd May 2013
Location: St John's House
For 5 years the University of St Andrews Institute of Medieval Studies (SAIMS) has hosted the Gender and Transgression in the Middle Ages conference, a three-day interdisciplinary conference for postgraduate and early career researchers aiming to create a platform for speakers to present their research, network and engage in creative discussion on the themes of gender in the Middle Ages.
During the conference Kirsty Lee, Archives Assistant in the Special Collections Division, spent the Friday afternoon introducing the delegates to a selection of original materials from our vaults, which were particularly ecclesiastical or gender-centric in nature, before giving the delegates an opportunity to engage directly with the material.
