This book examines feminist medievalisms over the period from ca. 1800 to the present day existing alongside or in tension with their better-studied masculinist or misogynist counterparts. Careful and illuminating analysis of particular moments, in medievalist fiction, film, political discourse, and embodied practices, reveals the false binary between feminism and medievalism and dismantles the myth that medievalism is solely a masculinist or misogynist cultural space. The book covers Jane Austen's work and its afterlives, the 1930s of Virginia Woolf, depictions of women in Arthurian film and television, women and participatory medievalism, and the treatment of female figures in contemporary political discourse
