The use of concepts developed in gender studies from the 70s has significantly transformed research in classical studies, opening up a new and extremely fruitful field of cultural and social analysis. Especially valuable has been the concept of intersectionality, through which to explore the contradictory and conflictual articulation of gender, race, class, age,

 After 50 years of working, it is time to both look back and ahead in a global context that has changed and was always changing with social and ideological advances and setbacks whose effects are also felt in the academic world

The aim of the project “Gender Studies and Classical Scholarship” is to provide a space for  both “past memories” and “future prospects” in order to support the contributions of feminist scholarship in relation and in response to current social and cultural issues and contexts.

Available in open Access, it is conceived as “a common work”, created and contributed to by all researchers engaged in Gender Studies. In addition to the members of the scientific committee, it requires the widest possible cooperation of each researcher interested in feminist theories and their application to the study of Antiquity.

How these theories have been, and are today, used and applied in the different fields of Antiquity (history, literature, philosophy, medicine, archeology, law, history of art …), in different cultural areas and at different times (Ancient Near East, Greece, Rome, reception of Antiquity)?

What has been, and what is, their impact in the academic world?

How to contribute to the expanding of these theories in deconstructing traditional and no-Gendered views provided in ancient and recent works of and on Antiquity?
