On 8-9 April, 2014 : The next meeting of the EuGeStA network, organized by Alison Sharrock, will take place at the University of Manchester, UK
The subject will be Motherhood in Antiquity.
Papers already promised range across Greece and Rome, literature and history, from pregnancy to the mothering of adult children. We aim, in particular, to analyse motherhood as far as possible from the female perspective, reading through the heavily male-dominated culture to try to reach some sort of sense of how motherhood might have been constructed and experienced for ancient Greek and Roman mothers. While we would not expect to be able to hear genuine mothers’ voices unmediated, except in a few highly unusual circumstances like that of Cornelia, nonetheless we hope to take the woman’s part, whether as a specific historical personage, a fictional character, or a type. Further details of the programme, together with booking information, will be posted here and on the Manchester University website in the near future.
