Couple relationships in antiquity: looking for real-life experiences - 08-09/11/2018, Lausanne (Swit
The topic of the conference is the quest for real-life experiences of ordinary couples in Greco-Roman antiquity. The couples studied are heterosexual adults belonging to lower and middle classes as well as to civic elites. Hellenistic queens and kings, Republican triumvirs, Roman emperors and members of the imperial family will not be considered. The conference hopes to examine male-female relationships in synchronic and diachronic ways, and seeks to glimpse the various ways the real-life experiences of couples is expressed in literary, epigraphical, papyrological, and iconographical sources from the 3rd century BC to the 4th century AD.
