The Romance of Silence: 
A Medieval Perspective on Gender and Suffering in Medicine

Recent accounts of the seriousness with which womens' experience of pain is taken in the medical community give us pause to consider the connection between the mental and the physical aspects of health and illness. This talk will explore the thirteenth-century verse Roman de Silence---the story of a girl raised as a boy---for its questions about gendered bodily experience and suffering.
