AbstractNumerous recent books and articles demonstrate that prosopography is enjoying something of a 'renaissance', thanks to new research into networks, family ties, and collective biography, and new technology-driven forms of prosopographical analysis. This session, sponsored by the journal Medieval Prosopography, will highlight some of this recent research, as well as fostering dialogue between scholars working in different times and places. The focus of this session will be new prosopographical research on women in late medieval Europe.
