Gender, Affect, and Social Belonging in Late Medieval England
This seminar will focus on intimacy and friendship among people below the
level of the aristocracy, demonstrating how gender influenced expressions of
affection and emotion in late medieval England. Using church court testimony
in tandem with sermon material and pastoral literature, it will explore the
relationship between instructional advice and social practice in order to
understand further the rhetoric, habits and gestures that characterised
intimacy in this period.
