Classics and the New Faces of Feminism
7 February 2015
On 31 January, the Classics and the New Faces of Feminism sandpit took place at the Institute of Classical Studies in London. The event was organised by Bristol's own Dr. Genevieve Lively and Dr. Efi Spentzou (Royal Holloway). This lively and stimulating day offered a mix of discussion, papers, and powerpoints by both established academics and graduate students. Participants had the opportunity to reflect on the history of feminist criticism in classics and to engage with emerging approaches in a strikingly friendly and supportive environment.
More information about the sandpit, including abstracts, is available on the Royal Holloway website. There is also a blog post about the sandpit on the Arts and Humanities in Higher Education journal website and a Storify of the event's Twitter coverage.
The event was sponsored by the Centre for the Reception for Greece and Rome and the Humanities and Arts Research Centre at Royal Holloway, the Bristol Institute for Research in the Humanities and Arts, the Institute of Classical Studies, and the Council of University Classics Departments.
