Couple relationships in antiquity: looking for real-life experiences

Lausanne, 8-9 November 2018

The topic of the conference is the quest for real-life experiences of ordinary couples in Greco-Roman antiquity. The couples studied are heterosexual adults belonging to lower and middle classes as well as to civic elites. Hellenistic queens and kings, Republican triumvirs, Roman emperors and members of the imperial family will not be considered. The conference hopes to examine male-female relationships in synchronic and diachronic ways, and seeks to glimpse the various ways the real-life experiences of couples is expressed in literary, epigraphical, papyrological, and iconographical sources from the 3rd century BC to the 4th century AD.

Keynote speakers : Bonnie MacLachlan (UWO), Amy Richlin (UCLA)

Topics include, but are not limited to:

- affective bonds and the dynamic of emotions within the couple
- the distribution of daily public and private chores
- the dynamic of couple relationships depending on socio-economic status
- realism and idealisation of couple relationships depending on the genre of the sources

This conference is part of a three-year research project (2016-2019) funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, the aim of which is to study and compare the functioning of ordinary and exceptional couples in Greco-Roman antiquity (https://www.unil.ch/iasa/projetcoupleen). A conference on exceptional couples – in which one of the partners was a head of state - took place on the 9th and 10th of November 2017 in Lausanne.


We invite the submission of abstracts of 300 words or less, to be sent by the 22th of January to claude-emmanuelle.centlivreschallet@unil.ch
