Hi all! I've been asked to organize a panel for the next Big Berks on medieval religious women, and, in keeping with the 2005 Berks theme, "Sin Fronteras: Women's Histories, Global Conversation," I thought that it would be interesting to do a cross-Mediterranean perspective instead of just concentrating on western Europe. So I'm looking for papers on women's participation in religion, women's religious experiences/expressions, and/or women as religious authorities in Western Europe, the Byzantine Empire or the Islamic world between AD 400 and 1500. Please direct all proposals to me and keep in mind that my deadline for submitting the entire panel to the Berks is December 15, so please try to get abstracts to me by December 10 or so. Thank you.
The Berkshire Conference on the History of Women will take place at Scripps College in Claremont, California, June 2-5, 2005.
