Gender and the Family, 2010

Gender and the Family: Annual Gender and Medieval Studies Conference

The next annual Gender and Medieval Studies Conference will be held in the Arts Building at the University of Birmingham, 7-10 January 2010. Please see details on the travel page for instructions on the location of the Arts Building.
This conference will examine the functions and representations of the medieval family in a range of contexts, examining how gender roles inform its definition and affect its economy, dynamics, and links to other institutions and networks. 


Despite the current snowy weather across the UK, we are intending to go ahead with the conference as planned. At present there is snow on the ground to a depth of a couple of inches in Birmingham, but roads are open and trains and buses are operating.
If you are coming to speak at the conference, please factor extra time into your travel plans if at all possible. If your journey is delayed, we would be grateful if you could let us know via email to gender.family.2010@googlemail.com This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
