Fourth meeting of 'Somewhere beyond the sea', the Belgo-British Network for Medieval Urban History

For the fourth meeting of 'Somewhere beyond the sea', the Belgo-British Digital Research Network for Medieval Urban History, we have the pleasure of hosting Dr. Jaime Page (Independent scholar) who will speak on 'Miserable, Shameful Lives? Prostitution in Late Medieval German Cities'.

Dr. Page (PhD 2013, University of St Andrews) is a specialist of late medieval Germany, with interdisciplinary interests in popular action, gender, sexuality, and crime. He is currently working on a monograph, Secret Women, Common Girls: Prostitution and Subjectivity in Late Medieval Germany, a microhistorical study of clandestine and municipal prostitutes in the cities of Zurich, Nördlingen, and Augsburg.

The digital sessions are free and open to all. Get in touch with the coordinator if you want to join: .

Somewhere beyond the sea is an initiative of the Henri Pirenne Institute for Medieval Studies at Ghent University and the School of History at Queen Mary University London (Prof. Miri Rubin).
