Thy Name Is Woman (Elizabethan Women, Mansplained)

I first taught this class at Pennsic in 2016. It was inspired by my reflections on how Elizabethan women were portrayed in the extant music of the period (see this post for more details).

These explorations also resulted in “The Double Bind: Thomas Campion and Elizabethan Women”, a research article that was published in the East Kingdom Gazette in January 2017.

Class description: An exploration, through songs and plays written by men of the period, of the complex and conflicted attitudes English culture held around women and their role during the Elizabethan period.
