This seminar examines European women’s history from the twelfth century to the French Revolution. By situating their lives within evolving social, economic, political and religious structures, we consider how women have acted individually and collectively, as agents of change and defenders of tradition, and how changing notions of gender have shaped communities, individuals and institutions. Topics include mysticism and sainthood, family and marriage, household production, witchcraft and scientific enquiry. Consent of instructor required. Enrollment limit: 12.
