A book launch to celebrate the book and its dedicatee, Sarah B. Pomeroy (professor emerita of the GC PhD Program in History). Sarah Pomeroy’s groundbreaking Goddesses, Whores, Wives, and Slaves introduced scholars, students, and general readers to an exciting new area of inquiry: women in classical antiquity. Almost fifty years later, New Directions in the Study of Women in the Greco-Roman World builds upon and moves beyond Pomeroy’s seminal work to represent the next step in this interdisciplinary field.
• Features contributions by major scholars in the field of the study of women in Greco-Roman antiquity
• Examines the many facets of women’s lives from cosmetics and athletics, to public visibility, activism and legislation, and the social power of non-elite women
New Directions in the Study of Women in the Greco-Roman World was edited by Ronnie Ancona (Professor of Classics at Hunter College and The Graduate Center, CUNY) and Georgia Tsouvala (Associate Professor of History at Illinois State University) and published by Oxford University Press (2021)
Monday April 4 from 1:00-2:30 pm Eastern (New York City) time via Zoom
