CCHS-CSIC International Symposium "Memory as Clout: By, For, and About Medieval Women"

This symposium takes on the topic of memory as an instrument of power. Women’s roles in memoria and commemoration have been well studied by scholars of the Middle Ages; indeed, they are a central theme in the historiography of medieval woman. To date, however, memory has almost always been framed in terms of religion and piety. Here, the papers presented tease out the various functions of remembrance, adding a new layer to traditional concerns with family and spirituality. They analyze the multiple ways in which memory in the Middle Ages could be wielded to enhance a woman’s power.
