Andrew Lear: The "Rules" of Sexuality in Ancient Greek Art
November 19, 2022, 12pm EDT
The painted scenes on Athenian ceramic vessels include many involving sex and sexuality, which—whether naturalistic or not—corroborate, amplify, and refine our understanding of ancient Greek sexuality. In this lecture, Dr Lear will explain what the “rules” seem to have been for sexuality in ancient Greece, how different these are from modern Western views/practices, and how vase-painting informs us about this topic.
