Teaching Bennett: Continuity and its Discontents
Hey everyone! Another Damned Medievalist has posted the fourth part of our roundtable discussion on Judith Bennett's History Matters. ADM sums up the discussion very nicely, then focuses some special attention on the pros and cons of teaching women's historical experience as a story of continuity, coming at it from the perspective of undergraduate teaching. Also, for those of you who enjoyed the discussion on Bennett's concept of "lesbian-like" women over at Tenured Radical (and I'd like to point out an interesting dissent on this from someone who studies women's monasticism), ADM gives her perspective on this.
And don't forget to come back right here next week for a special guest post by the author herself!
