  • ICS Ancient History Seminar - Summer Term 2023/24

    Sexual(ised) Violence in Antiquity – New Approaches
    The 1990s saw the beginnings of an interest in investigating rape and sexual violence in Antiquity with a particular concern with classifying specific acts and on whether or not to define an act as one of 'rape' while (often leaving 'sexual violence' un-marked). Recent years have seen a turn towards (i.) broader explorations of acts of power and control expressed in a sexual way and (ii.) a deeper understanding of how socialisation processes perpetuate power imbalances. As a result, ancient historians and classicists are starting to explore the contexts in which violence was sexualised in Antiquity. This new research is challenging the assumptions that guided earlier studies which - seeming pioneering at the time – were, it appears, often projecting 1990s concepts onto ancient evidence. The summer term’s seminar – which will fall thirty years after a 1994 symposium on rape in Antiquity in Cardiff - will contribute to conversations about current directions in research and seek to map out new avenues of inquiry.
