Gender and Sexuality

Instructor: K. Kapparis

TAs: Seth Boutin

Bob Brewer


The main issues
The main issues

  • Traditional historical research has viewed women, children, aliens, slaves and the elderly as irrelevant in the historical process

  • The adult citizen male has been considered as the creator of civilization

  • This view of history is inaccurate


Greek women
Greek Women

  • Greek Women have been viewed as victims of a patriarchal system, or as powerful inspirational figures for women of future generations

  • In reality, they have been the first women to write high caliber literature and produce art.

  • Many rose to prominence and secured a place in history in their own right



Slaves
Slaves

  • The powerhouse of ancient economics

  • Although ancient civilizations have been built on slave labor, the contribution of the builders has been forgotten.

  • Slaves have been treated as subhuman, although they were a diverse, large and culturally rich population in their own right.


Aliens
Aliens

  • The aliens of the Greek world contributed to the vigor of the Athenian economy and culture.

  • In Rome, the Greeks set the foundations of the enduring legacy of the ancient world.

  • Yet, it seems as if it is ‘The Athenians’ or ‘The Romans’ who get the glory.
