E02 – Viri absentes

Project within the CRC 923

Project E02: Viri absentes. Re-ordering of gender orders in the context of Roman expansion (2nd–1st century BC)

Project E02 analyses the interdependence between a war-related shortage of men in the 2nd and 1st centuries B.C. which led to a threat to the established order in rural areas of the Roman Empire, and the re-ordering of gender orders that occurred at the same time. In this context, particular attention is paid to the question of how the coping practices – which initially focused on the threat diagnosis of the absence of men (e.g. as heads of families) – affected the social position of women.


Research interests

  • History of the late Roman Republic and the early Principate
