Canceled: Dr. R. Futo Kennedy, Women's Migrations in the Ancient Greek Mediterranean

Please join the Department of Classics for its 2020 Annual Haines-Morris Distinguished Lecture by Rebecca Futo Kennedy, Denison University.

This talk presents preliminary data from a new research project that attempts to track women's movements throughout the ancient Mediterranean between 600 BCE and 400 CE. Evidence is drawn from Greek language grave markers and citizenship decrees in Greek cities. The project seeks to understand the extent to which women moved in antiquity and the reasons for their movements (migration, enslavement, etc). This study also seeks to bring women to the surface in economic, social, and political histories, whose presence is typically not visible in standard literary evidence.

This event is free and open to the public. A reception will follow the lecture.

Rebecca Futo Kennedy is an Associate Professor of Classical Studies, Women's and Gender Studies, and Environmental Studies at Denison University and is Director of the Denison Museum.
