Publications, Projects & Resources
A good number of GMS conferences have led to major publications focusing on conference topics. Here you will find a list of those publications, along with a developing database of useful electronic resources for the study of gender and sexuality in the Middle Ages. Also listed are links to current research projects on gender and sexuality in the Middle Ages being undertaken by members and affiliates.
The GMS Steering Committee welcomes suggestions for additions to this resource page, for which you should contact the site manager or a member of the Steering Committee. (test)
Here we aim to publicise funded research projects on topics relating to medieval gender and sexuality currently being run by GMS members and affiliates. Please help us to update this page by sending us details of any funded research projects in which you are involved.
‘The Enclosed Garden: Pleasure, Contemplation and Cure in the Hortus Conclusus 1100-1450′ is a 2-year Leverhulme Trust funded project focusing on the medieval hortus conclusus [enclosed garden] between 1100 and 1450, as it manifested itself within a number of contexts: literary, historical, theological, physical and medicinal. It is being run until October 2017 by Professor Liz Herbert McAvoy at Swansea University, assisted by Professor Trish Skinner and Dr Theresa Tyers. For more information, see the project website and blog.
‘Women’s Literary Culture and the Medieval Canon’ is a 3-year network research project funded by the Leverhulme Trust, being run by Professor Diane Watt at the University of Surrey. It involves an array of international partners from the UK, US, Norway and Switzerland. By bringing together this group of international scholars, all of whom work on both canonical medieval writers and on women’s literary culture in England and Europe, this network aims to demonstrate the importance of considering women’s engagement with literature for an understanding the established canon. It explores whether Chaucer and other male authors have more in common with women’s literary culture than has previously been assumed.
