Sheehan, Sarah, and Ann Dooley (eds), Constructing gender in medieval Ireland, The New Middle Ages, New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2013.  
abstract:
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.
