Lecture: Erotic jealousy: a noble emotion, or a shameful passion?
June 25, 2014 at 18pm
In antiquity erotic jealousy was anger: an aristocratic emotion,
worthy of heros, warriors and gods. In modern times, jealousy has become a
messy defeat, too embarrassing to admit, and politically incorrect.
Giulia Sissa, Italian born and currently resident in the US, graduated with a Laurea in Classics from the University of Pavia, 1977, and with the Diplôme d'Etudes Approfondies (DEA), in 1979 and the Doctorat de IIIe cycle in Classical Studies, in 1983, from the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris.
She holds a joint appointment in Classics and Political Science at the University of California Los Angeles. She has been a researcher at the Laboratoire d’Anthropologie Sociale, at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in Paris, and Professor of Classics and head of department at the Johns Hopkins University.
She is the
author of numerous books and articles on the history, anthropology and
philosophy of the ancient world, including:
translated into Spanish and Portuguese),
Eros tiranno. Sessualità e sensualità nel mondo antico (Bari, 2004).
