International conference: Femininity in Hellenistic Arts: Voice, Gender and Representations - 07-08-
The rise of feminist movements in the USA, and later in the rest of the western world, has aroused a special interest in issues related to women’'s voices in ancient literature: during the last four decades, philologists, historians and anthropologists, have studied archaic epics, lyrics and classical drama from this new viewpoint. Curiously enough, however, most of these studies overlook the Hellenistic period, even though women'’s status, and therefore the way their voice was taken into account, were then undergoing significant changes. This conference is meant to shed light on the evolutions of women'’s discourse, its contents and the way it was perceived, at a time when women'’s presence was getting more obvious in politics, arts and sciences than in the past.
