Section Information for Fall 2022

Students will learn the most recent advances in the field of gender studies in antiquity and learn how to apply that knowledge to several examples in the ancient Egypt where gender was a significant factor in the creation of a power dynamic. For example students will study the power inherent in the divine nature of the Egyptian Queen. The class will also include an in-depth study of Cleopatra VII and the gendered nature of the conflict between Hellenistic Egypt and Rome. This class will study examples of scholarship outside of Egypt to learn how to ask new questions and dissect traditional narratives. Students will gain the tools they need to analyze similar issues in the past and in the modern world.
