[APPEL À CONTRIBUTION] Networks of Women and Objects in the Early Middle Ages, DL 16/09/2022
This session proposes to explore how women constructed complex political networks through objects during the Early Middle Ages, between the 5th and the 11th century. Those entanglements between women, artefacts and the social environment constitute a new way to conceptualize the gendered construction of identity. Through objects made, commissioned or donated, women shaped their identity in relationship with men (craftsmen or beneficiaries of donations) and women. Our session proposes to use the tools of history and archaeology to understand those gendered networks and the connection between women and artefacts. In this context, it can therefore include jewellery, textiles, manuscripts, seals, or even objects in a fragmentary state such as certain relics.
