Taken a few hours ago today in Albuquerque, New Mexico where today I presented on my research on the creation of the alternative third gender model in the work of Hildegard von Bingen.
Title: "Constructing a Third Gender in Hildegard von Bingen’s Scivias, Hartmann von Aue’s Der arme Heinrich, and Dietrich von der Glezze's der borte."
The conference is the annual Medieval Association of the Pacific. Many literary scholars, historians, art historians, and musicologists who focus on the Middle Ages present their new research. It's my most favorite conference as every year it happens in a new Western urban center.

Now, I am not a fan of posting pictures of mine on my page as I tend to find that practice too unnecessarily egocentric. But I am posting one here. It's not about me, it's about that colorful piece standing proud behind me. The colors are unmistakably New Mexico and the text quite gendered.
