Women in the Middle Ages:

Engines of Our Ingenuity Links

Dr. John H. Lienhard, M.D. Anderson Professor of Mechanical Engineering and History at the University of Houston, is creator and host of KUHF Public Radio's Engines of Our Ingenuity, available to other other Public Radio stations, as well. "The University of Houston's College of Engineering presents this series about the machines that make our civilization run, and the people whose ingenuity created them." The term "machines" is used loosely, however, so a number of these short episodes involve the Middle Ages in general, and occasionally medieval women in particular. Each includes a brief bibliography.
