I am interested in the circumstances in which it is acceptable for women to act militantly - either in real life, or in portrayals. My dissertation focuses on the participation and perceptions of women in judicial combat in 13th-15th century Germany. I am also interested in the more general ways in which medieval and early modern women negotiate the spaces in which they have been assigned; in the history of chivalry and warfare; and in dissent or perceived dissent (especially heretics).
