9780415162296: Women and Slaves in Greco-Roman Culture: Differential Equations

Women and Slaves in Classical Culture examines how ancient societies were organized around slave-holding and the subordination of women to reveal how women and slaves interacted with one another in both the cultural representations and the social realities of the Greco-Roman world.
The contributors explore a broad range of evidence including:
* the mythical constructions of epic and drama
* the love poems of Ovid
* the Greek medical writers
* Augustine's autobiography
* a haunting account of an unnamed Roman slave
* the archaeological remains of a slave mining camp near Athens.
They argue that the distinctions between male and female and servile and free were inextricably connected.
This erudite and well-documented book provokes questions about how we can hope to recapture the experience and subjectivity of ancient women and slaves and addresses the ways in which femaleness and servility interacted with other forms of difference, such as class, gender and status. Women and Slaves in Classical Culture offers a stimulating and frequently controversial insight into the complexities of gender and status in the Greco-Roman world.

Sheila Murnaghan is Associate Professor of Classical Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. She is the author of Disguise and Recognition in the Odyssey (1987).

Review:

"This well-edited book is a timely example of how many classicists are currently engaging with Greco-Roman culture. It will generate debate and stimulate furthur research."
-Europe: Ancient and Medieval
"This volume of essays on women and slaves in Greco-Roman antiquity goes a long toward filling the gap in available material that addresses simultaneously issues of gender and class in Greek and Roman culture. This volume will be of great value to those teaching about and studying women and slaves in antiquity because of its persistent attention to making complicated seemingly simple analogies between women and slaves."
-Classical World
