Survey of gender and sexuality issues in the social, political, and religious life of ancient Greece and Rome; evidence from literature, the visual arts, archaeology.

Description:

This course offers a chronological survey of gender and sexuality in ancient Greece and Rome, from the time of Homer to the high Roman empire. Drawing upon ancient literature, material culture, and the visual arts, we will explore how cultural constructions of gender and sexuality operated in various social, political, religious, scientific, literary, and artistic contexts in the ancient world. Some topics include: the inversion of gender roles in Greek tragedy; Amazons; the role of rape in domestic comedy and national history; prostitution; homosexuality in love poetry, philosophy, and the courtroom; looking for love in Augustan Rome; the role of gender in ancient medical theories. Short papers, two exams.
