Simbolo e gesto. La determinazione di genere nelle statuette fittili del mondo greco - Genua, April 5, 2016 - Università degli Studi di Genova, Aula Magna della Scuola di Scienze Umanistiche, via Balbi, 2

The workshop organized by the University of Genua focuses on the application of gender theory to the study of votive terracottas. Such a research perspective is concentrated on the recogntion and the diversification of gender in material culture, intended as a place of construction of the representative system of society.

Within the framework of the conference, Roberta Menegazzi is going to present a contribution entitled "Identità (e ambiguità) di genere nella coroplastica di Seleucia al Tigri".

Seleucia al Tigri. Le terrecotte figurate dagli scavi italiani e americani
Three volumes (Monografie di Mesopotamia, XVI), Firenze 2014


The work, in three volumes, collects around 11,000 terracotta figurines that were brought to light throughout the last century at Seleucia on the Tigris.

Such a large corpus grew with time thanks to the efforts of two archaeological expeditions, the American mission of the University of Michigan and the Italian mission of the Centro Scavi di Torino. Its comprehensive presentation allows us to fully appreciate the rich informative potential of the Seleucian figurines, born from the encounter and the ex- change between Greek, Mesopotamian and Iranian culture. The book opens with an overview – both in Italian and in English – on the characteristics of the coroplastic production from Seleucia: techniques of manufacturing, iconography, style, chronology, function and meaning of the figurines are taken into consideration. The catalogue that follows is organized on a typological basis and is divided into four sections according to the finding areas of the figurines. The abundant photographic documentation illustrates over two third of the published materials.
