Art History Festival | The Medieval World with the Women Written Back In
Janina Ramirez will discuss her forthcoming book, Femina, and introduce the audience to the important women that have been written out of history. By bringing them back into the buildings they inhabited, the landscapes they walked across, and alongside the objects they handled, Janina will present new insights into the medieval period. Part of intricate medieval societies, these women show us places and times as complex and fascinating as our own.
Janina Ramirez is a cultural historian, broadcaster and author based at the University of Oxford.
