Construction of Identity in the Ancient World: Intersections and Reflections


Questions of identity and identity formation have begun to make inroads into the study of the ancient world in recent years. Especially questions of gender and ethnic identity have been in the focus of scholarly attention. With more and more material available and more differentiation in the methodological tools, the study of ancient identities is diversifying and requires an interdisciplinary approach. This research group aims at bringing together scholars working on the ancient Near East and those who specialize in Greek and Roman Antiquity, as well as other ancient cultures.
