CALL. 01.03.2019: Power Play in the Ancient World - Leeds (England)

22.01.2019

 

go to CONGRESS

 

Discussions of power dominate the world in which we live. We are concerned with who has power, who does not, how we can share, preserve or widen-access to power and its manifest institutions. In the ancient world, power was central to debates about political structures, imperialism, slavery, and sexuality. Such concerns are reflected within the literature of the ancient world, and how power is represented raises questions about its uses and motivations in ancient culture and society.
