520    Medieval Irish texts reveal distinctive and unexpected 
       constructions of gender. "Constructing Gender in Medieval 
       Ireland" illuminates these ideas through its fresh and 
       provocative re-readings of a wide range of texts, 
       including saga, romance, legal texts, Fenian narrative, 
       hagiography, and ecclesiastical verse. This ground-
       breaking collection presents new research by emerging and 
       established scholars, who explore a variety of 
       perspectives on sexual difference in medieval Irish 
       culture. The contributors examine the intersections of 
       gender with narrative, visuality, law, speech acts, 
       transgression, and performance - painting a compelling 
       picture of the many ways in which authors and audiences 
       conceptualized gender in medieval Ireland
