Encounter with the Queen
Did the classes really encounter each other this freely?
It has been said that on the battlefield all men are equal. Perhaps for women the great leveller for women has always been market day. For those of us rich enough to have someone buy our beans and chickens, either boredom or a desire to make our own aesthetic decisions will drive us into the street sooner or later.
Between the kids, the constant pregnancies, travel between estates and the odd security tension, I doubt Queen Beatriz got out that much. I suspect she sneaked out the back door.

Since leaving the higher education sector I’ve been focussed on thinking about education more holistically – I’m particularly interested in the interface between education and media, but I want to understand better how we can bring our traditional educational institutions to embrace the possibilities that the network and media are opening up. We need to reinvent education to suit the nature of our working lives, and our need to engage in routine lifelong learning. I use my research and writing skills to explore these issues. I consult on education issues and assist postgraduate students with their theses.
As an artist, my new project is Mayor, a graphic novel set in thirteenth century Spain. You can find out more about these activities in my blog: geniwate.com.
