Finding the Female Voice in the Ancient World

Dr Emily Hauser (University of Exeter)

It is hard enough to find women’s voices in the ancient world, let alone the voices of women poets. Women were often silenced in antiquity, told to be “seen and not heard”. Ancient authors were nearly always male, and the canon of ancient literature focused almost exclusively on texts by, for and about men, making it hard for women to gain entry to the literary scene and hiding them from view, turning their voices into stereotypes in male-authored texts, or even silencing them completely. So how do we go about uncovering the hidden literary voices of the women of classical antiquity? This talk uncovers a wide range of different approaches and tools we can use to find the female voice in the ancient world, some of them unconventional, crossing between research and creative practice, to explore how we might gain new insights into the forgotten literary women of antiquity.
