Citizen Bacchae: Women's Ritual Practice in Ancient Greece

By Barbara Goff | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

It takes a village to raise a book, and my global village comprises at least two continents and at least six institutions. I owe a great debt to all those, in all those places, who have helped this project to fruition. My colleagues at the University of Texas at Austin provided an atmosphere most conducive to interdisciplinary research, as well as to happy and productive teaching; among them, I wish to thank especially Michael Gagarin and Paula Perlman for their friendship, time, and all their efforts on my behalf. I would also like to thank Erwin Cook, Lesley Dean-Jones, Ingrid Edlund-Berry, Karl Galinsky, Lisa Kallet-Marx, and Cynthia Shelmerdine for the various contributions they made to my book and my general well-being. The students in my seminar “Women and Ritual” encouraged me more than they knew. Let me acknowledge too the friends in Texas who enriched my life and whom I miss: Miriam Kuznets, Andrew Cooper, Nancy Seelig, Andy Bullington, Cary Hazlegrove, Robin Bradford, Jim Williams, Jonathan Ayres, and Donna Carter.

A Solmsen Fellowship at the Institute for the Humanities at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, provided the uninterrupted time necessary to immerse myself in vase paintings as well as to draft several chapters. To the members of the Institute at that time, especially Chris Rowe, my thanks. The Department of Classics at Madison provided an encouraging audience and, moreover, the friendship of Laura McClure and her family. Less tangible but still very important support has been offered by colleagues at St. Lawrence University, Colgate University, Syracuse University, and Goldsmiths' College, University of London; at St. Mary's University College the support was indeed tangible, as I had the good fortune to receive a Research Fellowship there. The Department of Classics at the University of Reading is also to be thanked, since they have hired me.
