Tuesday, 22 June 2021 | 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm£5.00
The first woman to give a paper to the JHSE was a medievalist. Ninety-five years later, the first woman to be elected as President of the Society was a medievalist. This paper commences by reflecting on the contribution of women medievalists to the JHSE and scholarship more generally. This will be used as an entry point into the records generated by Jewish women’s moneylending activities in England in twelfth and thirteenth century England. As far as is possible, this paper will be based on scholarship produced by, or case studies directly relating to, women.
Dean Irwin completed his PhD at Canterbury Christ Church University (2017-21) and is a medieval historian specialising in the records of thirteenth century England.
