Welcome to Professor Fogle's course, Women in the Middle Ages.

This course will explore medieval Europe through the female lens. We will illuminate the influence of women on war, politics, business, religion and culture. We will study queens, writers, artists, nuns, businesswomen, and peasants in order to understand how women shaped the medieval world, how they were shaped by it, and how they contributed to the brilliance of the Renaissance.

 

Using Ebsco E-books

The publisher permissions for download vary: some titles allow unlimited pages, some limit to between between 60-100 pages. This allows the patron to take up to that page limit with no log-in or software requirement.  For EBSCO eBooks, the publisher permissions are set up by session so that patrons can take up to 60 pages per session. The page allowance refreshes once the ebook is closed.  So if you need another section or chapter, you can download an additional 60 pages that same day or another time.
