Réseau européen sur les Gender Studies dans l’Antiquité
European network on Gender Studies in Antiquity

EuGeStA is an international network which brings together European researchers working from the perspectives developed in Gender Studies in different disciplinary fields of Antiquity : literature, philosophy, history, history of art, history of religion, law, medicine, economics, archaeology…

There are two kinds of activities undertaken :
- the organisation of seminars rotating between the partner universities of the network
- the maintenance of a website which is concerned to promote contacts and exchanges between researchers and students.

How about ? :
- Announcing the formation of the Multiculturalism, Race & Ethnicity in Classics Consortium (MRECC)!
Everyone is invited to join this international professional organization founded in 2016 by doctoral students and faculty at the University of Georgia, Hamilton College, Rutgers University, University of Wisconsin, Bates College, and Cornell University aimed at raising awareness and supporting the study of the many facets of multiculturalism, race, and ethnicity in classics and classical archaeology.
Please check out their Facebook page and join in on the conversation https://www.facebook.com/groups/mrecc/?ref=aymt_homepage_panel.
MRECC can also be found on Twitter with the handle @mrecc_classics and a website is currently in development.
If you have any questions, suggestions, or want to get more involved in the organization, please send an email to Kelly Dugan and other founders at multiculturalclassics@gmail.com.
