New Videocast: The Clothing of Courtly Love
In this seventh episode of De Amore: On Love with Brikena Ribaj, I discuss the idea that many medieval characters, male and female, are not inflected for gender. I refer to such works as Parzival and Erec. Our understanding of how gender worked in the Middle Ages might just shed some light on the different forms of gender expressions we encounter in modernity.
