A new group for Trinity Term 2013, we warmly welcome everyone to join us for sandwiches, coffee and discussion of themes related to gender and sexualities in the middle ages. As a reading group sponsored by TORCH, we aim to create a relaxed environment for interdisciplinary discussion. Contact Rachel Moss in advance of meetings for catering purposes, and to be sent a (very manageable!) reading pack to facilitate discussion. It’s best to read material in advance, but if you suddenly find yourself with a free hour and feel like dropping in, please do.
