Exhibition Opening: Why Citizenship? Stories from Athens and Rome

Fri, 09 Jun 2017 08:00:00 +0000

Join the RD Milns Antiquities Museum for the opening of its new exhibition `Why Citizenship? Stories from Athens and Rome`. While it might appear that citizenship in the ancient world was a simple and straightforward concept, not everyone thought about citizenship in the same way. In Classical Athens entry into the citizen body was closely controlled, determined by gender, birth and ancestry, while in Rome, people of both free and freed status came to enjoy at least basic citizen rights over time. `Why Citizenship?` explores the stories of ancient people from a wide variety of backgrounds and asks why citizenship mattered to them. It also invites visitors to consider concepts of citizenship, and to reflect upon issues of gender, sexuality, politics, race and social status in the modern day.
