CALL FOR PAPERS
for the CAC Women's Network Panel
Classical Association of Canada, Annual Meeting,
May 12-14, 2008 in
Montréal (Université de Montréal).
WOMEN AND POWER
The theme for this year's Women's Network Panel at the CAC is "Women
and Power". Broadly, this panel seeks to address the question of how
women in the ancient world wielded what powers they had in public and
private life, how they were seen to do so, and how they negotiated a
lack of power. Types of power under consideration could include, but
are by no means limited to, political, economic, legal, sexual,
social, familial, religious and creative power. This call for papers
is meant to be suggestive rather than exclusive; papers are solicited
on all aspects of the relationships between women and power in the
ancient world, and on representations of those relationships in
literature and the material record.
