Conférence – Erika Graham-Goering, « There Can Be Only One? Rethinking the Exclusivity of Lordly Power in the Middle Ages »

Lunch Lecture by Dr. Erika Graham-Goering on medieval lordship

On Friday 9 June 2023 (12.30 pm), we have the pleasure of hosting Dr. Erika Graham-Goering, who will deliver an additional lunch lecture paper for the ’22-’23 Medieval Seminar Series cycle. Her paper will be entitled ‘There Can Be Only One? Rethinking the Exclusivity of Lordly Power in the Middle Ages‘. There will be time for Q&A afterwards. The lecture will take place in the « Camelot » room on the third floor of the Blandijn building.


This paper explores some of the many ways that medieval lords shared power with each other, and how these interacted with contemporary legal expectations. It argues that while lordship has traditionally been understood primarily in autocratic terms, these collaborative practices open up new analytical possibilities regarding aristocratic priorities and the hierarchies we ascribe to them.


Erika Graham-Goering is Lecturer in Late Medieval History at Durham University, and FWO Senior Postdoctoral Fellow at Ghent University on the project ‘Lordship as Corporative Government across Late Medieval France’. From September she will be Associate Professor of Medieval European History at the University of Oslo.
