Product description

This collection addresses the concept of gender in the middle ages through the study of place and space, exploring how gender and space may
be mutually constructive and how individuals and communities make and are
made by the places and spaces they inhabit. From
womb to tomb, how are we defined
and confined by gender and by space? Interrogating
the thresholds between sacred and secular, public and private, enclosure and
exposure, domestic and political, movement and stasis, the essays in this
interdisciplinary collection draw on current research and contemporary theory
to suggest new destinations for future study.
