Readings for Elina Gertsman’s Visit

Gail Gibson, “Scene and Obscene:  Seeing and Performing Late Medieval Childbirth,” Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies 29: 1 (1999): 7-24 (available via PDF through database accessible through Sophia—not Jstor).

Secondly, Charles T. Wood, “The Docotor’s Dilemma:  Sin, Salvation, and the Menstrual Cycle in Medieval Thought,” Speculum 56: 4 (1981): 710-727 (on Jstor).

Let’s read these and discuss them in preparation for her talk on April 13, 2012.  We will discuss in class when that will take place!  Onward.
