Women Medievalists on Medieval Women: A “State-of-the-Field” Symposium and Reception

The American Trust for the British Library is hosting a symposium at the Grolier Club on March 20th at 5:30 PM featuring speakers including St. John’s own Dr. Nicole Rice! More information can be found below, as well as on the ATBL website here.

Join the ATBL and scholars of medieval studies for a “state-of-the-field” symposium at the Grolier Club to discuss current scholarship by female-identifying medievalists on subjects related to the lives, patronage, and creative practice of medieval women.

This symposium celebrates the British Library’s upcoming exhibition, Medieval Women: In Their Own Words, and their longstanding support for scholarship on women’s experiences during the early modern period, notably the Library’s Joanna and Graham Barker-funded Medieval and Renaissance women digitization project (which successfully concluded in 2023 with the digitization of 93 volumes, 219 charters, and 25 rolls connected to the lives of European women between the years 1100 and 1600 C.E.).

The symposium will be moderated by Martha Driver.
