HIST7101: Women in Antiquity

Frans van Koppen

The focus of this half-unit course lies on women in Ancient Near Eastern societies. Concentrating on Mesopotamia prior to the Hellenistic age, with particular emphasis on the second millennium BC, we will occasionally draw on the situation in ancient Egypt for comparative purposes. The aim of the course is twofold: we will analyse the way in which social, economic and political structures affect the position and roles of women while making the theoretical issues involved in studying ancient women more transparent.
