Heroines and Whores: Women in Antiquity
This panel will negotiate the various roles of women in the ancient world (e.g. Greece, Rome, Mesopotamia, etc.) and their importance, as portrayed in archaic texts. We welcome all topics related to the depiction of women in ancient literary or artistic productions (e.g. epic, mythology, tragedy, comedy, vases, etc.).

Deadline: September 30. Please submit your 300 - 500 word abstracts along with your name and affiliation via email to Shelly Jansen, Rochester Institute of Technology, shelly.jansen@gmail.com or shelly.jansen@mail.rit.edu.

Interested participants may submit abstracts to more than one NeMLA session; however, panelists can only present one paper (panel or seminar).
