Description

This international, cross-disciplinary network aims to bring women to light as key players in ancient economies, and to promote gendered and intersectional perspectives in the field of economic studies of pre-modern societies. Despite the rising impact in recent decades of gender studies in fields like Classics, Ancient History, Near-Eastern Studies, Egyptology and Archaeology, economics remains an area largely dominated by male actors, both in our sources and in the field. The objectives of EAEN are to address and remedy this problem. The network welcomes research students, early-career and established academics around the world and is fully committed to giving a voice to the work of scholars who identify as female, sharing knowledge, denouncing inequalities, and supporting new and stimulating research and funding initiatives.
