Webinar: Rethinking Byzantine Masculinities: Gender, Sexuality, Emotions, Devotion

Hosted by Dumbarton Oaks

30 October 2020, at 2:00pm EDT

For the past five decades, Byzantinists have explored gender and sexuality. More recent work has turned to gendered emotions and religious devotion. While much of this research has its origin in women’s history, there has been an increasing interest in men, including monks and eunuchs, and in the articulations and performances of masculinity.

This conversation brings together scholars across the globe who have actively promoted this research to reflect on their work and its evolving academic and non-academic contexts.
