Papers from the Norwegian Institute at Athens
Greece & Gender.
Editors: Brit Berggreen & Nanno Marinatos
Greece and Gender is the title of two interdisciplinary workshops given at the then newly inaugurated Norwegian Institute for classics, archaeology and cultural history at Athens. The first workshop, held in February 1990, brought together people who are interested in the gender aspects of Greek past or present. The next workshop took place a year later, focussing more specifically on the transgressions and ambiguities of gender.
Both workshops were initiated by Brit Berggreen, whose fields encompass cultural history, regional ethnology and gender perspectives, but who is a novice to the empirical materials of ancient Greece. From an early stage, Nanno Marinatos took part as a co-organizer, representing ancient archaeology, philology and religion. Without this close cooperation it would not have been possible to produce this publication.
