It’s another Monday in March: are you ready to rumble? Head on over to Blogenspiel where Another Damned Medievalist hosts this week’s discussion of Judith Bennett’s History Matters: Patriarchy and the Challenge of Feminism. As an early medieval Europeanist, ADM wonders if there is a place and time where an emphasis on the continuity of women’s lives is not so useful. She writes, “[p]atriarchal equalibrium feels like it exists. It looks like it exists. It explains so damned much. But I think Bennett shows enough evidence that it’s an equalibrium made up of different factors in different times and places that it’s … hard to get a grip on.” Click here to read the rest!
In case you missed all of the excitement so far, you can see part I here, part II here, and part III here. Next week, we’ll all head back to Notorious Ph.D., Girl Scholar for a fifth post by Judith Bennett herself!
Remember, folks: keep it clean and above all on topic! See you over at Blogenspiel.
