The John Rylands Research Institute and Library in Manchester, UK hosts the 'Beyond Exceptionalism II' conference between 11-13 July 2022. This three day event will adopt a hybrid format that simultaneously offers sessions both in-person and online.
Beyond Exceptionalism II is an interdisciplinary conference that moves into new areas of analysis - non-elite and marginal women, material culture, network analysis, gender and space - and includes a non-European perspective.
After more than 50 years of intense research and publication, the study of medieval European women still had not reversed an entrenched notion: that elite woman who held and exercised power were the exception to the rule. This event leads on from an earlier conference in 2015, where a group of medievalists asked on a rhetorical question: how many ‘exceptional’ ruling women does it take before they are the rule? It also led to ground-breaking work collected into an edited volume: Medieval Elite Women and the Exercise of Power, 1100–1400: Moving beyond the Exceptionalist Debate (Palgrave 2018). Six years and one global pandemic later, the question still resonates. Studies that assume medieval women were marginal and powerless remain at the centre of our field.
