Class Notes: The ancient Greeks were not as limited or one-dimensional about the roles of men and women as one might think; rather, their ideas about the roles of men and women were actually very modern. The Greeks composed tragedies and comedies about women assuming masculine roles in society, wrote philosophical treatises about male homosexuality, fostered the myth of the Amazons, and enshrined Sappho of Lesbos as the singer of same-sex love among women. In this course students will read a wide variety of lively literary, philosophical and legal sources bearing on issues pertaining to women, gender and sexuality.|
