Wisconsin Studies in Classics
Established in 1982 with a generous bequest from Warren Moon, this series publishes books on classical art, archaeology, literature, and culture. We accept submissions in all areas of ancient studies, and are particularly eager to receive books with a focus on the following: the integration of material and literary culture, the integration of contemporary theory with ancient texts, classical art and iconography, and the art and archaeology of the Greek and Roman East.
Please send all inquiries to UW Press Acquisitions Editor Amber R. Cederström.

Slavery and Sexuality in Classical Antiquity
“A set of detailed, theoretically informed and compassionate studies of the sexual existence of enslaved persons. Using textual, visual, and archaeological evidence,this valuable book builds on and challenges earlier work to illuminate crucial aspects of forms of domination in the long histories of Ancient Greece and Rome.”
The Gods of the Greeks
“Decades after its initial publication in German, Erika Simon's magisterial study of the Olympian gods is still a basic source for Greek religion in all its manifestations. Now thanks to this elegant translation, English readers will have the opportunity to delve deeply into the archaeological and textual sources which inform our understanding of these ageless divinities.”
