Feminist Impact on the Arts and Sciences Series: Classics and Feminism / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
Feminist Impact on the Arts and Sciences Series Classics and Feminism measures the influence of feminist theory and the women s movement on one of the most tradition-bound disciplines in academia. Tracing the considerable effects of feminism on scholarship, pedagogy, and disciplinary institutions over the past 30 years, this well-documented study shows how a progressive movement can breathe new life into higher learning. To illustrate the way feminism can draw new insights from canonical works, McManus includes a feminist reading of a fundamental classics text, Vergil s Aeneid. Barbara McManus volume Classics and Feminism provides an unusual combination of approaches, overview, case study, and survey. Her work definitively establishes what a difference feminist approaches have made in classics. Nancy Rabinowitz, Hamilton College
