Keynote Speaker - Dorota Dutsch on Ancient Philosophy
Her talk ist titled: “Knowledge Bites: Women Philosophers and the Greek Paideia”
Dorota Dutsch is Professor of Classics at the University of California Santa Barbara (USA). Her research focuses on social performance (comprising anything from comedy to funeral rites).
This talk puts Theano in conversation with Hipparchia the Cynic, in order to propose a subversive and ironic reading of Theano’s apothegmes. In the process, we recover traces of an ancient permutation of the ‘equality versus difference’ debate.
