“Can a Woman Be a Cinaedus? Interrogating Catullus 10 and Roman Social Norms,” by Barbara Gold, the Edward North Professor of Classics and Greek Literature Emerita, is included as a chapter in Searching for the Cinaedus in Ancient Rome. The book, co-edited by Associate Professor of Classics Jesse Weiner, was published by Brill in October.

Gold’s chapter examines “how Catullus uses the adjective cinaediorem in poem 10 and what this usage might tell us about the attitudes of Romans in the late Republic towards masculinity and sexual positioning.”
