A chapter by Visiting Assistant Professor of Classics Anne Feltovich appears in the recently published book Women in Roman Republican Drama, edited by D. Dutsch, S. James, and D. Konstan (Wisconsin 2015). “The Many Shapes of Sisterhood in Roman Comedy” examines how the bonds of sisterhood inspire women to manipulate the Roman paradigms of gender and power in order to effect positive change on behalf of themselves and their sisters.

Feltovich said the chapter provides valuable insight into the literary portrayal of relationships between women in Roman comedy, a genre in which the portrayal of friendships and familial bonds between men has long captured scholarly attention.
