Dr. Jennifer Borland to speak at the Medieval Fair of Norman

MedievalFair Norman

On Friday, November 9, 2012 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., Jennifer Borland, Assistant Professor of Art History at Oklahoma State University, will explore the images found in copies of the Régime du corps, a late medieval health guide. These luxuriously-decorated books, likely intended for use by noblewomen managing their households, were apparently designed to move medical knowledge from the university into the home. As such, they alter how we might understand women's roles in late medieval healthcare.

Dr. Borland's lecture is called "Managing Health in the Medieval Household: The Illustrated Manuscripts of the Régime du Corps" and it is the third lecture in the Medieval Fair Free Lecture Series for 2012-2013

This is a free event! For more information on the Medieval Fair, go to the website.
