Associated scholarship(s):15/02566-7 - Research project for the research internship abroad (BEPE-DR) - title of the PhD research project: Adultery, imperial politics, and gender relations in Rome (31 B.C. - 68 A.D.), BE.EP.DR


The project aims to propose a study on the practices and conceptions of adultery among the Roman aristocracy, during the Julio-Claudia dynasty (31 B.C. - 68 A.D). We intend to discuss and explore the various and possible connections between adultery and politics through a theoretical approach that prioritizes thegender relations. We believe that adultery is a controversial point, according to available sources on the period, and it can be a key theme. It can be important to reveal aspects of sexual behavior, as well constructions of femininity and male, the connections between moral and imperial policy, relations betweenpublic and private, and the notions of family and marriage to the Romans.
