CFP – Classics and Women: Ancient and Modern


Call for Papers: WCC UK Panel at the Classical Association Annual Conference 26-29 April 2017

Classics and Women: Ancient and Modern
Deadline for Abstracts: 2nd August 2016

The WCC UK invites submissions for our inaugural panel at the CA. Our aim is to demonstrate how much there is to gain from recognising historical, conscious, and unconscious bias in the ancient classical world (broadly defined) and in studies of the ancient world. The panel seeks to showcase recent academic work from a range of perspectives, underscoring the benefits of embracing heterogeneity in the study of Classics. We welcome in particular papers that seek to diversify Classics in approach, findings, or methodology.

We invite submissions that focus on (but are not limited to) the following: gender and the non-human, resistances to hierarchy, new approaches to ancient and modern pedagogy, women in war, gendered bodies, women in material culture/archaeology, gendered economies, and pioneering women in classics, ancient history and archaeology. We warmly encourage Classicists at any career stage and of any gender to submit abstracts.

Please send anonymous abstracts of no more than 200 words to either virginia.campbell@classics.ox.ac.uk or lucy.jackson@balliol.ox.ac.uk by Tuesday August 2nd 2016.
