Overview Overview
 

This module takes an interdisciplinary approach to questions of gender and sexuality in the Celtic-speaking world from the earliest sources in the Classical period through to the thirteenth century. Literary and documentary sources such as legal texts, saga literature, ethnographical writings and hagiography will be examined in conjunction with linguistic, material and visual culture in order to investigate a range of issues, including the status of women in Celtic societies, laws relating to marriage, paternity and sexual offences, and depictions and subversions of masculinity and femininity in medieval Celtic saga narratives.
