Of a Different Color: The Ever-Changing Image of the Female Centaur

Chiara Sulprizio

Vanderbilt University

This talk explores the evolution of literary and visual representations of female Centaurs, from monstrous figures to devoted wives and mothers in antiquity, and from coquettish brides-to-be to hyper-sexualized warriors in the modern day. Discussion will center on why portrayals of these anomalous creatures have changed so drastically over time and how they compare with those of their male counterparts.
