Paper of interest

Hi Everyone,

At the SCSC in St. Louis, I will be giving a paper that might be of interest to scholars of early modern women and gender: “The Materiality of Last Will” in the panel The Materiality of Writing: Social Norms and Performative Text in Premodern Towns, # 46, Mill Studio 5, 8:30-10:00. The paper considers last wills of seventeenth century Tuscan women as performative acts to understand women’s legal literacy and how they used it.
