Gender and Sexuality in Game of Thrones
An examination from the position of academic medieval scholarship; comparing and contrasting social patterns of gender and sexuality in real Medieval Europe, in modern society, and in Westeros. Were there homosexuals in Medieval Europe? What were the social patterns of gender, for both men and women? How did they define their sexual/gender identities? Westeros resembles each in certain respects, but is different from either. Beyond the Faith of the Seven, what are the cultural patterns of the Ironborn, the Dornish, and the Dothraki? Were there Trans people in the Middle Ages and in the world of Westeros?

Eye of Argon Reading
The legendary fantasy story that’s been called "one of the genre's most beloved pieces of appalling prose", the "infamous 'worst fantasy novel ever' published for fans' enjoyment," and "the apotheosis of bad writing." No one can read it out loud without cracking…but we invite you to come try.

Medieval Marriage and the Social Status of Women in Game of Thrones
Discussing the social status of women in Westeros and in the real Middle Ages, which inspired it. Differing marriage patterns had major effects on the social status of women (varying by region); how there has never been one “traditional definition” of marriage because it changed over time. Marriage is tied to inheritance patterns, which directly affected how often medieval women held political power. Also marriage-related topics of prostitution, contraception, abortion, bastardy, etc. -- How frequently do women in TV-Westeros hold political power compared to book-Westeros? Discussing gender-swapping, and why there is increased violence against women in the TV adaptation.
