Proposals are invited for contributions to a workshop to be held at the Institute of Classical Studies, London on 7th and 8th June.
For more than fifty years the standard debates about Roman Imperialism remain written more or less entirely in terms of male agency, male competition, and male participation. Not only have women been marginizalized in these narratives as just so much collateral damage - victims, captives, abandoned wives and mothers - but there has been little engagement with gender history more widely. Discussions of more recent imperialisms and imperial societies are now quite different. Our aim is to spend two days exploring whether or not the Roman experience, both of Republican expansion and imperial rule, might be rewritten to take account of gendered roles and gendered experience. We invite proposals for papers from ancient historians, archaeologists, classicists and anyone else with an interest in these questions.
Keynote Speakers: Emily Hemelrijk (Amsterdam) and Alison Keith (Toronto)
Other confirmed speakers: Richard Alston (Royal Holloway, University of London)
