Session sponsor : The International Joan of Arc Society
Session title : "Peasant Lives on Record: War, Piety, and Rural Women in the Medieval World"

General description : Joan of Arc emerged from the 15th century peasant class, a subject that has merited discussion because of the recorded interrogations of surviving eyewitnesses to Joan's childhood that formed part of her rehabilitation proceedings. However, numerous issues and comparisons remain to be addressed, including the role of peasants in war and war's impact on their lives and on females in particular.

In addition to the abstract, candidates should send a Participant Information Form.
