U of T's Alumni Reunion Acorn

From class meet-ups, to receptions, to faculty lectures, the events that make alumni reunions so popular are back. Join us online and in-person for the largest alumni gathering of the year. For 2022, we’re hosting special events to honour alumni who graduated in a year ending in 2 or 7. We can’t wait to welcome you back to our #OasisInTheCity.

How to Read the Sistine Chapel

The Other Sister: Women, Inconsistencies, and the Historical Record*

Dr. Alison More is the inaugural holder of the Comper Professorship in Medieval Studies. Her talk will focus on women who pursued forms of religious life outside of the cloister in Western Europe during the later middle ages. Traditional historiography presents a model of religious life that was intrinsically ordered and somewhat static. It generally holds the cloistered nun to be the archetypal model of feminine devotion The reality is somewhat different. While it is impossible to recover every voice, careful collaborative and archival work reveals the multiple (and surprising) roles played by women religious. Examining these women and listening to their voices forces us to rethink what we thought we knew, and how we ended up knowing it.

2:30 – 3:30 p.m.


In-person location: Sorbara Auditorium
