Christiane Klapisch-Zuber: "Identity and Gender in the Late Middle Ages and Renaissance"

Marta Sutton Weeks Distinguished Visitor

Christiane Klapisch-Zuber is Co-director of the Center for Historical Studies at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales in Paris. While in residence, Professor Klapisch-Zuber gave three public lectures. "The Origins of an Image of Kinship: The Genealogical Tree in the Late Middle Ages" and "The Dangerous Godmother in Renaissance Tuscany: Gender-related Problems in the HIstory of Spiritual Kinship" were separate public lectures, while "Family Identity and Civic Identity in Late 14th Century Florence" was given as the keynote address for the conference on "Identity, Politics, and Culture in Renaissance Italy." There is virtually no subject in Renaissance history, from politics to gender studies, that has not been influenced by Klapisch-Zuber's innovative work.
