2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the first edition of "Rape in Antiquity", edited by Susan Deacy and Karen F. Pierce, a book that after twenty years still remains as an example of an innovative approach to a classical topic. To mark this anniversary and to emphasize the importance of this line of research in the last decades, a new conference, like the 1994 original one in Cardiff from which the book resulted, will be held at the University of Roehampton, London. The objective of this event is to promote a rich discussion on the subject of sexual violence in antiquity, by having in the same place a mixture of renowned scholars and newest generations of researchers which will result in the presentation and debate of new theories and points of view
