A.   簡介 Introduction (within 500 words, Chinese or English) 

隨著跨領域研究的蓬勃發展,中世紀的女性及性別角色也開始受到許多特別關注。中世紀的女性角色,如:瑪潔莉‧肯普(Margery Kempe)或是馬克雅的克莉絲緹娜(Christina of Markyate),已成為中世紀學者心目中的首要研究議題,且女性力量(female agency)及性別角色也已在中世紀研究領域中獲得其重要性。
在2016年,本場次旨在將以往以性別為中心的主題,轉移至更確切的饗宴研究,剖析饗宴中的性別權力分析,檢視性別角色和被賦予性別的物品(gendered objects)是如何影響盛宴的準備、慶祝、儀式、贊襄,和中世紀社會各階層人民對於盛宴的觀察。這個場次以2016年秋季赫圖拉斯(Hortulus)中的性別空間(Gendered Spaces)為主題,我們希望將來可以出版本場次所呈現的研究結果。就如本會期刊的目標,乃提升研究生專業的研究能力,因此本場次會議皆由在學研究生籌備、主持並發表文章。

Gender at the Feast
The roles of women and of gender in the Middle Ages have received particular attention in recent years with invigorating studies across multiple disciplines. Medieval women, such as Margery Kempe or Christina of Markyate, have been brought to the forefront in the minds of medieval scholars and questions of female agency and gender roles have been given new scholastic importance in medieval circles.
Keeping in mind the theme of the 2016 Congress this session seeks to turn the focus of gender to the specific topic of feasts and feasting. This session will examine how gender roles and gendered objects affected the preparation, celebration, ceremony, patronage, and perception of feasting in all strata of medieval society. The session follows the theme of our Fall, 2016 issue of Hortulus, ‘Gendered Spaces’, and we hope to be able to publish in that issue some of the papers delivered in this session. As our journal mission is to support the professionalization efforts of graduate students, the session is organized, presided over, and comprises papers given by current graduate students.
Welcome topics include, but are not limited to:
1.Roles of women and female religious orders at feast times.
2.Gendered objects and their uses in times of celebration or feasting.
3.Defining gender roles within the process of celebration.
4.Gendered spaces pertaining to either the secular dining hall or the 5.physical religious environment at feast times.
