HIST7101: Women in Antiquity
Frans van Koppen
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.
