Sexuality in Ancient Greece and Rome

Classics 219

Usual Description

Study of the construction of gender and sexual identities in ancient Greece and Rome. Emphasis will be on primary texts that demonstrate notions of sexual practice and/or identity, such as Aristophanes’ Thesmophoriazousae, Plato’s Symposium, Aeschines’ Against Timarchos, and poetry of Sappho, Catullus, Ovid, Martial, Juvenal. We will also read modern critical theorists of sexuality, and will interrogate the usefulness of their arguments for understanding ancient Greece and Rome.
