Call for papers
The study of women in the ancient world has garnered academic interest and public fascination since the feminist movement of the 60s and 70s. Seminal works by Sarah B. Pomeroy, Suzanne Dixon, Judith P. Hallett and Susan Treggiari, to name just a few, have highlighted the abundance of resources in the ancient world that can be used to shed light on the various roles that women played in these societies. This inaugural Women in Antiquity Conference Series, hosted by the Institute of Classical Studies in London, would like to continue this current trend by focussing on ‘Female agency: Women disrupting the patriarchy’.
