Figurationen von Macht und Herrschaft zwischen Transgression und Verflechtung in England und Frankreich, 600–1500

This project considers how literary and other narrative sources from England and France between 700 and 1500 ascribe qualities of Macht and Herrschaft to elite women.

It theorizes forms of charisma that are transgressive because they counteract masculine power structures or incorporate seemingly “negative” qualities. The study explores how elite networks and assemblages (of people, texts, objects) assist the construction of feminine charisma.
