History Lecture Series: “Hear Me Roar: Powerful, Violent Women of the Renaissance”
Flipping the Script: Unexpected Moments that Time Forgot
For the final lecture of the series, Samuel Claussen, PhD, will discuss several Renaissance women who wielded power as effectively as their male counterparts. In addition to being a moment of intellectual dynamism and cultural innovation, the Renaissance was also marked by intense warfare and violence. We often think of the Renaissance as a movement dominated by masculine leadership and patriarchal organization, with women serving in passive, submissive or supportive roles. But such a view only tells part of the story.
