Gender in medieval places, spaces and thresholds

This month sees publication of Gender in medieval places, spaces and thresholds, a collection of 15 essays edited by Victoria Blud, Diane Heath and Einat Klafter. The collection addresses the concept of gender in the middle ages through the study of place and space. From womb to tomb, how are we defined and confined by gender and by space? Now available in print and as Open Access.

All IHR collections are now available Open Access via the Humanities Digital Library. Nearly 200 IHR chapter-by-chapter downloads are also available via Open Access books on JSTOR.

Open Access publishing also includes the our new series of concise, topical histories— IHR Shorts which launched in late 2018.
