Early Cultures Conference
Premodern Intersectionality: Marginal Identities in Early Cultures
Tuesday | March 6, 2018
10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Humanities Gateway 1030
Committed to the idea of giving articulation to marginalized issues within the history of the premodern world, Premodern Intersectionality demonstrates the longstanding conversations in medieval thought around matters of sexual and reproductive consent, sexual-shaming, respectability politics, homosocial and homoerotic relationships, transgender and non-binary gender identifications, the representation of disability/ableism, and the systematic oppression of peoples through state-sponsored brutality. Reading against the grain of modern expectations for the premodern world, this conference looks at representations of these problems from antiquity up to the early modern period.
