image: Coursework headerA heavy reading course, Women in Antiquity called for students to dive into such classic works as Hesiod's Theogony and Works and Days, the Homeric Hymns to Demeter and Aphrodite, Euripides' Medea and Bacchae, and, of course, Aristophanes' Lysistrata. In addition, students had to purchase the following first two texts; the third was recommended:

  • Woman, Culture, and Society, (Stanford University Press), edited by Michelle Zimbalist Rosaldo and Louise Lamphere.
     
  • Women's Life in Greece and Rome: A Sourcebook in Translation, (Johns Hopkins University Press), edited by Mary R. Lefkowitz and Maureen B. Fant.
     
  • Women in the Classical World: Image and Text, (Oxford University Press), by Elaine Fantham, Helene Peet Foley, Natalie Boymel Kampen, and Sarah B. Pomeroy. An illustrated chronological survey including primary sources and historical and cultural context.
