The information found on the flyer is repeated in the text of the post.Professor Emily Baragwanath will be speaking about ‘Xenophon’s Women at Home’ at Wake Forest University, Department of Classics, on Monday, March 20, 3.30-5pm, Tribble A303. The talk arises from a couple of chapters of her nearly-completed monograph, which investigates the representation of women and their narrative and explanatory role across the works of the fourth-century Athenian writer Xenophon. The book aspires to provide a corrective to the way Classicists have thought about this individual philosopher and historian, who proves to be a forerunner and contemporary of other intellectuals on the radical edge in their revolutionary ideas about human society, and also about gender in antiquity more broadly.
