How can we incorporate gender into the study of medieval Europe and why should we do so? Skinner explores how historians have chosen to approach the period, and uses illustrative case studies to help students identify how their own approaches are a product of their social and political environment as well as their own personal preferences.

Patricia Skinner is Wellcome Research Fellow in History of Medicine at Swansea University, UK. She has published widely in the field of medieval history.
