Misty Urban for the Society for Medieval Feminist Scholarship

This panel is designed to be an exploration of the kinds of pressures that are brought to bear on medieval women's bodies--artistically, conceptually, economically, and materially--and the kinds of responses that women's bodies figure to these pressures, whether in the form of resistance, conformation, or transformation.
