The Role of Noblewomen in Literary Production in Northern France during the 13th-Century

My project involves an interdisciplinary study on the intersection of female lordship and literary production in northern France in the thirteenth century. Focusing on Ponthieu and Boulogne, it combines literary analysis, codicology and historical research, re-situating the texts and documents associated with female lordship within the lineage-centered politics of the central Middle Ages. A key component of the study, one tying together the literary and the historical, will be the emphasis on the manuscript context of both literary and historical texts. An in-depth examination of one important region during a key period, this study will help fill important lacunae in our understanding of both medieval literary culture and medieval noblewomen's contributions to literary production. More broadly, it will contribute to the academy's on-going reassessment of female lordship in medieval society.
