This weeks Classics resource is Diotima.

Whilst commencing research for my next module, Women in Ancient Myth and Society, I came across this exceptionally useful site.

Diotima provides a central resource for information on gender and sexuality. Furthermore, there are essays, translations and links to images.

For the study of women in ancient myth and society this is definitely an excellent starting point.

  1. You may be interested in Sarah B. Pomeroy’s “Goddesses, Wh**es, Wives and Slaves: Women in Classical Antiquity. I put some letters in asterisks in case it goes straight into your spam folder.

    • Hello Pauline, thank you very much for the recommendation I shall certainly have a look at that. I am very much looking forward to my next module, got to wait until October to start it but in the interim going to do a lot of reading.
