Fascinated by The Iliad’s lamentation of a long-gone female-centered worldview, Dr. Ruth Heflin pursued an important question, researching archaeological, literary and historical evidence for an answer. This led her to discover important revelations about human sexuality during the early Bronze Age. 

This event is free and open to the public. A reception will follow the evening lecture at the Nerman. 

College Scholars showcases faculty excellence in research fields that go beyond the classroom to make scholarly contributions to knowledge within the professor's academic discipline.
