Nathalie Franckaerts (°1996) obtained her master's degree in History in 2019 at the University of Antwerp with a thesis on the legal status and economic activities of women in the early modern Antwerp meat trade. She is currently preparing a doctoral dissertation on late medieval noble travel narratives. Her research finds itself at the intersection of nobility and gender studies, aiming at understanding how Western noblemen and aristocrats fashioned their male elite identity when travelling to the Orient and to what extent the representation of Islamic society aided such male self-fashioning.
