It is a pleasure to recommend her translation be read alongside my work to see what was said in the Middle Ages and then how it was interpreted.
Body: 
A 2010 report by the American Historical Association showed that women comprised 35% of all history faculty, mirroring similar trends in gender disparity across academia. While the academic history field has traditionally been male-dominated, Mother’s Day serves as a day to celebrate significant women in our lives. In tribute to this year’s Mother’s Day, we wish to acknowledge and celebrate the many contributions by women to the field. Several OUP authors shared their thoughts on the female historians that have inspired them and shaped the field.  Some are mentors and advisors that have supported careers, while others are admired for their work from afar.  All are noteworthy for their contributions to the history field. “My academic life...

La fête médiévale, qui perpétue une tradition qui date d'un arrêté ducal pris le 8 avril 1462 par le Roi René d'Anjou, se déroule ce jeudi de l'Ascension. La 546e édition Pas facile de trouver une fête qui remonte aussi loin. Selon la légende, la Baillée des filles remonte au temps du roi René. Le 8 avril 1462, un arrêté ducal est pris par le roi qui institue cette manifestation, qui a lieu juste après les vêpres de l'Ascension. Un drôle de nom !

It’s a big event for fashion and the most popular part of it all isn’t even the event itself really, but rather when the stars dilly-dally on the red carpet, surrounded by swarms of photographers on either side furiously clicking away at their cameras. If you’ve ever bothered to scroll through photos the day after on the internet, you’ll notice they’re mostly full of women. And rightly so. Because many of the most interesting and unique outfits are worn by women. Well, some things never change. Ac...
