This talk explores women in the Ancient Mediterranean World through examination of Art and archaeology from the Early Bronze Age to the beginning of the Roman period, encompassing cultures such the Cycladic, Minoan, Mycenaean, or the later Greek and Roman cultures.
We will focus on how women were portrayed in Art and how their roles and influence transformed across two millennia as well as why the study of gender in Antiquity remains one of the most vigorous and challenging areas of modern scholarly debate.
