Exploring Gender Diversity in the Ancient World

Edited by Allison Surtees and Jennifer Dyer

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Provides a focus on gender on its own terms and outside the context of sex and sexuality
  • Offers an interdisciplinary approach, appealing to Classicists, Ancient Historians, and Archaeologists, as well as audiences working outside the ancient world, in Gender Studies, Transgender Studies, LGBTQ+ Studies, Anthropology, and Women's Studies
  • Covers a broad time period (6th c. BCE - 3rd c. CE) and addresses both textual evidence and material culture (vases, sculpture, wall painting)
  • Provides history of gender identities and behaviours previously ignored or suppressed by disciplinary practices
