Beyond Thucydides

New Approaches to Athenian Imperialism

Eric Driscoll

Drawing on overlooked genres of evidence and new theoretical approaches, my research illuminates how the fifth-century Athenian empire was not a stable, monolithic entity but, rather, a bundle of systems and processes that interacted and competed in complex ways. Athenian imperialism, I argue, attempted to control the collision of autonomous religious and economic systems and to subsume them within an imperial politics; but in so doing, it left itself open to contestation as well as accommodation in the languages of those systems. In this lecture, I explore some of the concrete domains in which the meaning of the Athenian empire was created and contested.
