G St 112: Women and Power in Ancient Times
Women’s power in the ancient world was compromised from the outset, and
we explore the root causes and consequences of this social inequality.
How did women negotiate their limited leadership roles? Were they able
to rule "behind the throne" so to speak? How are we to find a woman’s
power when it was so habitually cloaked by a man’s dominance? This class
will use bioarchaeological evidence to address those questions and
examine the breadth of women’s roles and agency in past societies.
