From Abortion to Pederasty: Addressing Difficult Topics in the Classics Classroom, co-edited by Professor of Comparative Literature Nancy Sorkin Rabinowitz ,was recently published by Ohio State University Press. Her co-editor was Fiona McHardy of the University of Roehampton in London.
According to Rabinowitz, “This new volume focuses on helping faculty approach issues in the ancient material that may make students and faculty uncomfortable in class; it hopes, as well, to make clear the continuing relevance of the Classics curriculum to contemporary debates and problems.”
Alison Keith of the University of Toronto said, “From Abortion to Pederasty is very relevant to the larger research agendas within the field of classical scholarship, and will enable those who admire the current cutting-edge classical research to integrate the difficult subjects it tackles into their undergraduate and graduate classrooms. It will fill a definite lacuna in the pedagogical literature.”
