Women Classical Scholars

This is just a short post to bring to your attention a piece on Eidolon, a site which seeks ‘new ways to write about the ancient world’, Yung In Chae is in conversation with Edith Hall (Department of Classics at King’s College London) about feminism and Classics in light of a new collection of essays from Oxford University Press, Women Classical Scholars: Unsealing the Fountain from the Renaissance to Jacqueline de Romilly, which she has edited with Rosie Wyles.

We decided to hold a conference because Rosie Wyles and I had collected, just as a hobby, and would send each other references to brilliant foremothers because we were very upset that there had never been this book.

“Women Classical Scholars: Unsealing the Fountain from the Renaissance to Jacqueline de Romilly is the first written history of the pioneering women born between the Renaissance and 1913 who played significant roles in the history of classical scholarship.”
