A public lecture about the histories of gender, families and children, critically asking what do we still want to know?

The lives of medieval people are a distant memory and often went unrecorded. The recent 'emotional turn' in history has reinvigorated interest in the social world and dynamics within families and households. Consequently, our understanding of the experiences and mentalities of people from the Middle Ages has grown enormously in recent times.

This lecture will discuss the recent insights we have gained and offer a framework for assessing the lives gone by. The question of what else we need to know to more fully understand the medieval issues surrounding gender, family and children will also be broached.

Taking place on Tuesday the 11th Oct 2016, 6 PM at the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery, the lecture is delivered by Stephanie Tarbin, School of Humanities and ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions, UWA. Stephanie undertakes research on gender and social history of late-medieval and early modern England.

Attendance is free but online booking is essential.

The talk is part of the 'What's new in the Medieval?' Lecture Series, presented by the Institute of Advanced Studies and the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions.
