Gender and Sexuality in the Ancient World

CLST 266

Class examines ancient erotic poetry, prose, material evidence (e.g. vase paintings) to explicate gender as a cultural sign: sexuality as a language in which other business is transacted. “Obscene” literature, paintings, etc. evidence how the ancients constructed men, women, sexuality—but also social hierarchies, national prerogatives, and identity.
