Approaches to the Fountain

(p.1) 1 Introduction
Women Classical Scholars

Oxford University Press

This chapter introduces the volume by explaining its genesis in a conference in London in 2012, and the commissioning of new essays to supplement the original papers. It describes the scope, aims, and methodology of the book. It is a collection of essays on important women classical scholars born before World War I, who worked in Britain, France, Portugal, Italy, Denmark, Russia, and the USA. It surveys the history of scholarship on women experts in the classical languages and literature, both in relation to women’s education and women’s publishing and similar works in analogous fields. It reviews the contents of the essays, sets them in historical context, and supplements them with brief discussions of many other learned women, especially those in the former Eastern bloc and in German-speaking countries. An Appendix provides details of numerous other women classicists in the hope of encouraging further research in this field.
