HIS 2210 - Gender and Society in Early Europe

Credits: 4.00
A study of the roles and experiences of women vis-à-vis men in early Europe from antiquity through the Middle Ages and into the Early Modern period. Readings include primary documents and secondary works on gender theory, philosophy, medicine, religion and law as well as economy and labor, sexuality and marriage, motherhood and the body, and issues of race and status. By the end of the semester students should understand what the difficult and ongoing project to find women’s voices and create a space for women in the historical record has accomplished to date. They should be aware that many of the basic issues and problems that women faced in the past are still faced today. Throughout the semester examples from modern media will illustrate the contemporary status of many age-old gender issues.
