‘Gender and the Archaeology of Medieval Nunneries’

Close to 30 years ago Prof Roberta Gilchrist published ‘Gender and Material Culture: The Archaeology of Religious Women’. This influential book has been a cornerstone of gender and medieval archaeological research and studies of women religious more broadly. Its continued impact is evident in the recent book by Dr Tracy Collins, ‘Female Monasticism in Medieval Ireland: An Archaeology’, which is the first gender archaeology of medieval nunneries in Ireland. In this virtual event, we bring together these two scholars to speak to the context in which their books were created –both times of renewed feminist activism.

This talk is the first in a new series of virtual events by the Society for Medieval Archaeology.
