WGSS 21.01 Slaves, Wives, & Concubines: Did Roman Women Have a History?

This course is about the heterogeneous lived experience of women (slaves, freed slaves, lawful wives, daughters, prostitutes) during the Roman Republic and Empire. Roman women built and immortalized themselves and their families in funerary and civic monuments, endowing institutions like schools, and sometimes had coins bearing their portraits. We explore the larger institutional frameworks that gave meaning to their lives, and within this framework we investigate theri live choices over time.
