Visual culture and women’s political identity in the early modern Iberian world II 

21–22 September 2017

Venue: Department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies at the University of Nottingham

Following the opening conference devoted to this theme, held at CHAM, in November 2016, this second conference brings together an international group of researchers from a range of scholarly perspectives to explore, discuss and debate a series of case studies on the visual construction and projection of women’s political identity in medieval and early modern Spain and Portugal. The papers explore a number of critical perspectives that range from the portrayal of Queens and their household to the discourse on female piety and spirituality, both in the court and beyond to lower social strata. The role of women’s agency within the structures of patriarchal society and discourse that underscored much of visual culture is addressed in a number of insightful ways. Furthermore, the range of papers engages with prescient methodological issues facing the study of the visual dimensions of female political identity. 

In addition this conference is pleased to announce a plenary lecture by Juliet Perkins, King’s College London.
