Yurie Hong (Classics)

Posted on September 23rd, 2016 by

Yurie Hong published a book chapter entitled “Mothering in Ancient Athens: Class, Identity, and Experience” in the edited volume Women in Antiquity. This chapter examines the lives of mothers in Athens during the 5th and 4th centuries BCE. It explores how mothering across all social groups would have been impacted by the necessity of 1) balancing the immediate needs of children with daily tasks and 2) securing long-term stability for oneself, one’s children and one’s household within Athenian society.
