Slavery and Sexuality in Classical Antiquity

We are inviting chapters of 6000-7000 words for an edited collection that explores the intersection of slavery and sexuality in the ancient world. The past twenty years have seen ground-breaking scholarship that has illuminated Greek and Roman prostitution, and this volume will broaden the area of study to document more fully the role of sex in the lives of slaves who were not prostitutes, and to consider the various ways in which sexuality and slavery were interconnected in the minds of the ancients. Chapters might include discussion of the following issues:

updated: 
Monday, October 2, 2017 - 9:53pm
Claire Sommers/The Graduate Center, CUNY
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 10, 2017

The art, history, literature, and philosophy of ancient Greece and Rome serve as the foundation of Western civilization. While the Classics have had a tremendous influence on subsequent cultures, the academy frequently keeps the discipline of Classics separate from modern literatures and languages. Yet the Classics have always been an integral part of cultural productions and the university itself; the word “academy” even has its origins in Plato. This roundtable will explore the current state of Classics scholarship, focusing on Classics as an area of study as well as its place in contemporary academia. Possible approaches include:
· Defining the Classics

· Current research trends in Classics scholarship
