Associated to the scholarship:13/26304-6 - Beyond heteronormativity: an analysis of the eunuchs represented in Statius, Martial and Suetonius (Rome, 80-121 AD), BP.MS


The objective of this project is to present a research proposal to analyze the discursive practice in the Silvas, from Statius; Martial's Epigrams and Suetonius' Life of the Twelve Caesars. The intention is to build a more solid understanding of Latin literature, considering the literary narratives of these three writers. To achieve our objective, we sought the methodological framework of critical discourse analysis, trying to understand the context of production, distribution and consumption of our sources. We propose to take part of this research at University of Cambridge, where we believe that under Professor Christopher Whitton's guidance, the analysis of the representations of the eunuchs can be better performed.
