„An Herrn Prof. A. Wlosok“
Über eine der ersten Latinistikprofessorinnen im deutschsprachigen Raum – eine Spurensuche im Jahr 2020
Keywords:Antonie Wlosok, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, History of Women in Academia, Gender Studies, History of Classical Philology
In contrast to other European countries, female professors of Classical Philology have been severely underrepresented in Germany. This article wants to shed light on Antonie Wlosok (1930–2013), the first or second woman to hold a Chair of Classical Philology in Germany. How can Wlosok’s work at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz be described, considering especially the very male-dominated academic world? Based on testimonials from the university archives and selected publications, this essay aims to give insights to this question, highlighting current debates about women in academia.
