This conference aims to bring together historians with a shared interest in gender, change and
continuity in pre-modern England and Wales. Its aim is to recover women’s voices from historic
records in order to better understand their changing roles across the medieval and early modern
period; to reconstruct women’s real lived experiences away from the restrictions of prescriptive
literature and dominant narratives and finally, to highlight the problems of recovering women’s voices
from the written record and creatively explore and suggest new approaches and methods by which this
can be achieved.
