The series ‘Gender and Sexuality in the Global Middle Ages’ explores questions of intersectional gender and sexuality – broadly interpreted – in a global medieval context. The series seeks to make significant theoretical contributions to feminist scholarship by historicizing gender and sexuality in diverse ways. Publications in this series explore the meanings that medieval peoples attached to gender, bodies, sex, sexual identity and behaviours, desire, practices, materiality, ability and disability, race and religion, within particular medieval periods and places, not only in the medieval west. The series encourages disciplinary and interdisciplinary variety via, for example, historical, literary, philosophical, theoretical, art historical, archaeological, medical, legal, socio-economic and palaeographical approaches. It considers submissions in the form of monographs, tightly-focused edited volumes, and new editions of medieval texts. The series welcomes innovative and ground-breaking submissions from diverse locations, and supports a capacious and intersectional study of gender.
