HIST 352. Medieval & Early Modern Women. 3 Hours.

This course examines the lives of European women from the beginning of the Middle Ages through the early seventeenth century. It explores the use of gender as a category for historical interpretation as it investigates women's (and men's) identities, agency, and power in the household, the court, the Church, and the marketplace. While this course does examine the lives of famous women, it primarily seeks to reveal the lives, thoughts, feelings, and experiences of all European women over the course of eleven centuries. Prerequisite: HIST 101, 102, 103, 104, 211, 212, or 215H or the consent of instructor. EU/T.
