CAC Western Tour – “Locating Alce: Place and Space in Isaeus 6” (Dr.Allison Glazebrook, Brock University)

This talk examines the characterization of Alce in Isaeus 6 On the Estate of Euctemon to explore the complexity of family, female privilege, and female citizenship in classical Athens. Although the speech is less well known than [Demosthenes] 59, it contains much valuable information about the role and place of free, slave, and freed women in the ancient household and city.
