Edited by Ross Scaife of the University of Kentucky and Suzanne Bonefas of Southwestern University, Diotima "serves as an interdisciplinary resource for anyone interested in patterns of gender around the ancient Mediterranean and as a forum for collaboration among instructors who teach courses about women and gender in the ancient world." To that end, the two collaborators have placed a number of helpful syllabi from courses dealing with this subject here for the general public (and colleagues), along with an anthology of translated primary sources from this era, such as various writings of Sophocles, Hesiod, Euripedes, and others. Equally compelling are the links to outside Web resources, such as one dealing with the Book of Ruth and one dealing specifically with the women of ancient Rome. Finally, interested parties may sign up to be informed of updates to the Web site, and submit articles for the consideration of the editors.
