Courtesans at table : gender and Greek literary culture in Athenaeus by Laura McClure( )

Drawing on Book 13 of the Athenaeus' 'Deipnosophistae', which contains almost all known references to Hetaeras from all periods of Greek literature, Laura K. McClure has created a window onto the ways ancient Greeks perceived the courtesan and the role of the courtesan in Greek life
Making silence speak : women's voices in Greek literature and society( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2018 in English and held by 890 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection attempts to recover the voices of women in antiquity from a variety of perspectives: how they spoke, where they could be heard, and how their speech was adopted in literature and public discourse. Rather than confirming the old model of binary oppositions in which women's speech was viewed as insignificant and subordinate to male discourse, these essays reveal a dynamic and potentially explosive interrelation between women's speech and the realm of literary production, religion, and oratory. The contributors use a variety of methodologies to mine a diverse array of sources, from Homeric epic to fictional letters of the second sophistic period and from actual letters written by women in Hellenistic Egypt to the poetry of Sappho. Throughout, the term "voice" is used in its broadest definition. It includes not only the few remaining genuine women's voices but also the ways in which male authors render women's speech and the social assumptions such representations reflect and reinforce. These essays therefore explore how fictional female voices can serve to negotiate complex social, epistemological, and aesthetic issues. The contributors include Josine Blok, Raffaella Cribiore, Michael Gagarin, Mark Griffith, Andre Lardinois, Richard Martin, Lisa Maurizio, Laura McClure, D.M. O'Higgins, Patricia Rosenmeyer, Marilyn Skinner, Eva Stehle, and Nancy Worman
Sexuality and gender in the classical world : readings and sources by Laura K McClure( Book )

23 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores the fascinating world of sex and gender roles in the classical period. It provides readers with essays that represent a range of perspectives on women, gender and sexuality in the ancient world. They are accessible to general readers whilst also challenging them to confront problems of evidence and interpretation, new theories and methodologies, and contemporary assumptions about gender and sexuality. The essays cover a broad spectrum of scholarly perspectives, and trace the debates and themes of the field from the late 1960s to the late 1990s. They also address a range of literary and non-literary genres, including some non-canonical sources such as medical writings and inscriptions, to elucidate ancient ideas about sexuality and the discourses that shaped these ideas. The book also provides translations of primary sources to enable readers to confront the evidence for themselves and assess the methodology used by historians. It includes Greek literature and society, Roman culture and the legacy of classical myth for modern feminist scholars. It includes and examines not only women in antiquity but also masculinity and sexuality to provide a comprehensive account of this fascinating topic."--BOOK JACKET>

Spoken like a woman : speech and gender in Athenian drama by Laura McClure( Book )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In ancient Athens, where freedom of speech derived from the power of male citizenship, women's voices were seldom heard in public. Female speech was more often represented in theatrical productions through women characters written and enacted by men. In Spoken Like a Woman, the first book-length study of women's speech in classical drama, Laura McClure explores the discursive practices attributed to women of fifth-century B.C. Greece and to what extent these representations reflected a larger reality. Examining tragedies and comedies by a variety of authors, she illustrates how the dramatic poets exploited speech conventions among both women and men to construct characters and to convey urgent social and political issues."--Jacket

Against her better judgment, Ruth agrees to take Victoria's place and rescue the campaign.

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The current study looked at the relationship between serum vitamin D concentrations, vitamin D intake, sunlight exposure, BMI, and body fat percentage in both indoor and outdoor female collegiate athletes during fall and spring seasons. Healthy collegiate female athletes, between the ages of 18-22, had BMI calculated from anthropometric measurements, body fat percentage assessments via dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scans, serum vitamin D levels determined via fingerstick and dried blood spots, followed by liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). In addition, sunlight badges worn during a 24-hour period assessed sunlight exposure in fall and spring seasons. Estimated dietary vitamin D intake assessed via Vitamin D Food Frequency Questionnaire (VDFFQ), and sunlight habits were assessed via TWU Sunlight Habits Questionnaire (TSHQ)
