Hi everyone, I'm just starting my first ever MA essay (scary stuff) and we have to pick our own question (within the bound of the course etc). I've decided on looking at the role of Women in the civilizing of courts in the Early Modern period and I just wondered if anyone could recommed any books/articles etc. I've already got Elias and Duiandam (sp?) but I'm having a bit of trouble with the women element of the research, all the books/articles i have so far seem a bit too vague and not really that relevant. So any suggestions would be really appreciated =)
his article looks really helpful. I've not properly read it yet, but when i remember to bring a blank cd onto campus i'll properly get into it (i can never concentrate on reding articles on the library computers!). The footnotes all look wonderfully relevent too =) thanks!
