About this book

This collection examines gender and Otherness as tools to understand medieval and early modern art as products of their social environments. The essays, uniting up-and-coming and established scholars, explore both iconographic and stylistic similarities deployed to construct gender identity. The text analyzes a vast array of medieval artworks, including Dieric Bouts’s Justice of Otto III, Albrecht Dürer’s Feast of the Rose Garland, Rembrandt van Rijn’s Naked Woman Seated on a Mound, and Renaissance-era transi tombs of French women to illuminate medieval and early modern ideas about gender identity, poverty, religion, honor, virtue, sexuality, and motherhood, among others.

Reviews

“The volume … summarizes the state of research and outlines the major theoretical issues in considering the intersection of gender, ‘otherness,’ and visual culture. … it should become a desiratum for scholars interested in gender.” (Diane Wolfthal, Early Modern Women Journal, Vol. 13 (2), 2019)
