Women, Gender, and Authority in Late Antiquity, Byzantium, and the Medieval
The one-day event will explore the relationship between gender and authority, and how the exercise of power affected the daily lives of women. Investigating the experiences of secular and monastic women, papers will focus on a range of themes, including marriage and widowhood, marital sex, mobility, race, and slavery. Keynote speakers, panel presentations, and a round table discussion will be followed by a reception hosted by the Canberra Chapter of the Australasian Women in Ancient World Studies.
