This exhibit, designed by first-year student Claire Harte, uses Robbins Library materials to explore how the Arthurian myth has been a medium for both solidifying and subverting long-held ideas about gender. By collecting a range of texts intended for different audiences – children, teachers, adults, scholars – this exhibit presents the scope of the Arthurian legend within popular culture, while highlighting the place of women within the Arthurian tradition as characters, authors, artists, and scholars.
