Gender and the Classics Curriculum: A Survey
Blundell, Sue
Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, v8 n2 p136-159 2009
A survey was carried out in 2006 of all the UK universities where Classics and Ancient History degrees are taught at undergraduate level. The results reveal that nearly half of these courses include at least one dedicated gender module, and that the great majority also have gender embedded in the content of modules dealing with other topics. Issues of prime concern to the author are that dedicated gender modules attract only a small minority of male students, that masculinity is still not treated very widely, and that the continued dominance of genre-led modules militates against the teaching of the "real life" issues of gender, as opposed to its discourse. (Contains 5 tables and 1 note.)
