TORCH Book at Lunchtime: FEMINA:

24 April @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

TORCH Book at Lunchtime: FEMINA: A New History of the Middle Ages Through the Women Written Out Of It

TORCH Book at Lunchtime is privileged to welcome Dr Janina Ramirez to discuss her widely acclaimed book FEMINA: A New History of the Middle Ages Through the Women Written Out of It. Described by the Guardian as “a revelatory study of medieval women’s lives” FEMINA re-evaluates the status of women in the Middle Ages whose names have been ‘struck from the historical record due to the one word annotated beside them – FEMINA.’ One review states that “FEMINA is an ambitious project, Ramirez orients each chapter around a particular theme and figure placing the past and present beside one another using modern scientific discoveries and cultural artefacts to provide contextual information for the subject she is discussing. Careful to underline that she is not re-writing history but rather shifting the focus from men to women, Femina’s overarching goal is to use the visible – physical artefacts – to reveal the seemingly invisible – women”

Join Dr Ramirez and an expert panel to discuss this ground breaking and history revising work.
