Ancient Greek girls' clothing in multidisciplinarity: a study between images, texts and materiality

Presentation by Elodie Bauer.


What types of clothing were worn by girls from birth to marriage in classical Athens? It is to this question that my lecture, which explains my current doctoral project, will attempt to give some answers. Whether it concerns its aesthetic aspects, its effects and placement on the body, the context of its wearing or the identity of its wearers, Greek female garments and adornments are here analyzed through a multidisciplinary approach, combining vascular iconography, textual documents and material matters.

A free discussion among all participants will follow the lecture.

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer zoom participation for the foreseeing future. As always,
everyone is welcome to join us in person at the university!

CTR Meeting

The preceding hour (at 14:00-15:00), is mainly considered an administrative meeting for CTR members. Yet, if anyone else wants to join, you are most welcome. The meeting will consist of general administrative and CTR-related news and information as well as a round of “News around the table”, where everybody is expected to give a short update on their projects. Anyone participating during this part is expected to join in, regardless of whether or not you are a CTR member.
