AbstractDuring the Middle Ages, political borders did not isolate southern France from its Mediterranean neighbors. The sessions in this series are designed to bring the region's rich historiography out of its local context and to connect southern France to the field of Mediterranean studies. This session, featuring speakers from the United States and Germany, explores the role of women in credit systems, commerce, law, and canonization proceedings in Languedoc, Cerdanya, and Provence, with special attention to new digital methods and inter-regional comparisons.
