Gender and the social imaginary in medieval Welsh law

Gender and the social imaginary in medieval Welsh law
 
  6:30 pm - 7:45 pm

This lecture will explore the role played by gender in medieval Welsh legal writing. The lawbooks of medieval Wales, have recently been argued to have narrative qualities rendering them susceptible to several different kinds of analyses including standard historical readings, scrutiny as law, and more literary critical methods. Robin Chapman Stacey will examine the ways in which ideas about male and female inform lawbook depictions of space and time, animal and human bodies, and everyday practices such as farming.
