Politics, Patronage and Prostitution: The Experiences of Medieval Women

Christ Church Special Interest Event | Christ Church, Oxford.

“Every Spring Christ Church holds a Special Interest Weekend open to the public. In April 2014 we are having a single topic weekend on ‘Politics, Patronage and Prostitution: The Experiences of Medieval Women’. This weekend offers the chance to hear papers from a group of specialists on those matters which involved and concerned women generally. By sampling some individuals, such as Christine de Pisan, Heloise, Eleanor of Aquitaine and Joan of Arc, as well as taking a look at the experiences of those less famous, we shall endeavour to answer the question: what was it like for women to live in the medieval world?”
