About The Course
Most people who ever lived left barely a trace of their existence, but with women the problem is compounded. Women have historically been less powerful and less literate than men, and this has affected their presence in historical archives. So how can we access their lives? How can we reclaim them from historical oblivion? Can we restore them to history? This course explores these questions through three detailed case studies, offering the opportunity to explore the lives of ordinary, poor, marginalized, and enslaved women throughout history.
Delivery, timings and dates:
The course will be delivered by a series of 4 pre-recorded video lectures, and separate live group Q&As with the course tutor via a video conferencing platform. Participants will also receive a reading list, course literature and activities.
