About this title:

Synopsis: Charting important new territory within medieval gender studies, Megan Moore explores the vital role that women played in transmitting knowledge and empire within Mediterranean cross-cultural marriages. Whereas cross-cultural exchange has typically been understood through the lens of male-centered translation work, this study, which is grounded in the relations between the west and Byzantium, examines cross-cultural marriage as a medium of literary and cultural exchange, one in which women's work was equally important as men's. Moore's readings of Old French and Medieval Greek texts reveal the extent to which women challenged the cultures into which they married and shaped their new courtly environments. Through the lens of medieval gender and postcolonial theory, Exchanges in Exoticism demonstrates how the process of cultural exchange -- and empire building -- extends well beyond our traditional assumptions about gender roles in the medieval Mediterranean.

Review:

'Moore maintains a highly accessible style. Her use of engaging examples make this study a pleasure to read, one which combines questions of hybridity, exchange, and gender in fruitful ways.'

- Victoria Turner - Modern Language Review vol 110:02:2015

'Moore offers a thought-provoking consideration of how identity is created and uncovers a shift in attitudes toward the Mediterranean over time....Scholars interested in questions of gender in Old French romance will find Exchanges in Exoticism well worth their time.'

- Kristin Burr - Medieval Feminist Forum, vol 50:01:2014
