Submissions welcome for panel at the April 2021 Renaissance Society of America conference in Dublin

Call for proposals on how the category of gender survived, disappeared or was transformed in contact with death in the late medieval and early modern period.

Proposal of how the differentiation based on the categories male/female was maintained, effaced or subsumed within other contemporary categories when dealing with dead bodies, their cult, conservation, etc. Discussions of how Laqueur’s one-sex model is supported or undermined by social practices that compensated for the dead bodies’ lack of agency to “perform” or “do gender.”

Studies of wills, funeral procedures, burials, relics, anatomical dissection, representations of death and afterlife etc. are some of the documents and practices that can be analyzed in the proposal.

Send 200 word proposal by August 1 2020 to Enrique Fernandez (, University of Manitoba)
