Different Visions: A Journal of New Perspectives on Medieval Art
Issue Five: Female Sexualities

Different Visions: A Journal of New Perspectives on Medieval Art is a web-based, open-access, peer-reviewed annual, devoted to progressive scholarship on medieval art. The fifth issue of Different Visions is devoted to Female Sexualities and guest co-edited by Sherry Lindquist and Mati Meyer. As Sherry states in her introduction, the papers in this issue had their origin in a session devoted to this topic at the 2010 International Medieval Congress at Leeds. It is very exciting to be publishing them now in Different Visions. For free online-access to all articles, see here:
