Women and Objects in Antiquity
Herausgegeben von Henriette Harich-Schwarzbauer; Cédric Scheidegger Lämmle
Women and Objects continues the work of the ‘European Network on Gender Studies in Antiquity’ (EuGeStA) in advancing and refining the study of gender in ancient Mediterranean culture. This multilingual volume, which presents the proceedings of the fifth EuGeStA conference (Basel, October 2017), explores the intersection of gender studies and the burgeoning field of object theory. Its fourteen contributions engage with a very wide array of ancient authors, genres, topics and artefacts, from Homer to Sidonius Apollinaris and from everyday objects such as tools and lamps to magical gems and objets d’art. Grouped around three focal points (‘Theorising and Conceptualising Objects’, ‘Literary Appropriations of Objects’ and ‘Objects between the Symbolic Sphere and the Material World’), all the papers open new perspectives at the interface of gender and object studies.
