Here is a full publication list that includes acknowledged research publishers, and others. The list is ordered chronologically within each language (Norwegian / English / Other) and type of publication (Book / Paper).  Items have year and letter names. My fifth publication in 1997 is “1997e”. Often, items are presented with English translations of titles, and original titles in parentheses. 

For locating items you can use the search page facility of your browser, searching for a year like “2006”, a word in the title like “care” or the exact code like “2006b”. 

Publications with more than one author are listed in authors and year format (like: Holter & Lammi 2006).

Historical studies 

miletos ogh 1986 (2)
(Miletos, 1986) 

As a Norwegian Social Research Council (NAVF) stipendiate in three years in the period 1984-89 I undertook a study of early historical family and gender systems, economy and work organization, titled Pair Relationship Changes (Samlivsendring). The project, originally conceived as a purely sociological study, developed into a huge historical-sociological project, later developed on part-time basis. Four large note books / unpublished draft working papers exist, containing notes, comments and empirical discussions. The project included extended library research and a three months archeological study travel in Greece and Anatolia, 1986). 

 1984g: “The Gifts of Poseidon” (Poseidons gaver) (245 p., 1984). Contains an analysis of ca. 300 legend / oral history marriages, highlighting mixed (non-patrilocal) and matrilocal patterns; discusses legendary vs. archeological material and men’s role as ‘mobile’ in society.  

 1985a: “Artemis” (In English, 336 p. 1985). This is a survey of traditions and context of the most popular female Greek deity, with notes on the historical change of the goddess image and evidence of early connections to Anatolian and Hittite deities, as well as material on the lives and customs of women.  

 1987d: ”Tribute and Empire” (200 p., 1987). This is a preliminary notebook on Middle East developments 2000-1200 BC focusing on the changing economic categories of dependency. Translations of tablet material from Kanesh (Assyrian traders), and sources from Assyria, Ugarith etc. are used. 

 1988a: “Sumer” (315 p., 1988). This is an overview of the Sumerian civilization with discussion of the economical system, the political and election system, occupational categories, family patterns etc. (I also have comments from assyrologist Aage Westenholz, Copenhagen, on this MS). 

The project was presented in two lectures at the Norwegian Institute at Athens: “On focal dependency” (part of the “Gender and Greece” workshop, February 1990), and “Artemis – a sociological perspective on Greek religion”, open lecture, April 1991.  

Historical publications 

My first specifically historical-sociological paper was the 1982b paper on sexuality where I welcomed Foucault’s historically open view of sexuality while critisising him for not taking gender and its impact on sex seriously enough. 

Some findings from the 1980s sociological-historical studies are discussed in these papers: 

1984 B: Sex Before Gender (Da sex ikke var kjønn). Kronikk in Dagbladet, Jan. 10th. 1984 

1987 E: The Male as Gift. On Gender and Kinship Circulation in Early Antiquity. (Mannen som gave).  In: Kvinneforskning og vitenskapsteori, Skriftserie i vitenskapsteori no. 1, Universitetet i Oslo 1987. 

1987 F: The Study of Early Greece: The Saga Material (Studiet av det tidlige Hellas – sagnmaterialet). Klassisk Forum 1987, 2, 17-19 

1990k. Og i begynnelsen…(And in the beginning…) In: Beatrice Halsaa & Else Viestad, eds.:  I pose og sekk,   Emilia Press, Oslo, s. 173-208.  

i skyggen akropolis omslag 1994g: ”When Age Became Gender: On Pederasty and Physical Intimacy in Antiquity” (Når alder blir kjønn – om pederasti og kroppslig intimitet i antikken). In: Øivind Andersen and Thomas Hagg, eds.: I skyggen av Akropolis. Universitet i Bergen, Det Norske Instituttet i Athens serie, 1994 excerpt / utdrag 

1999b: “Masculinity and history – on studies of men as a new dimension in historical research” (Mannlighet og historie – om mannsforskning som ny dimensjon i historisk forskning). Kvinder, køn & forskning 8, 3, 7-30  

My historical work is discussed and applied also in the dr. philos thesis 1997e, the papers 1982b, 1984d, 1986c, 1991f, and others. I would not have been able to write cotemporary historical papers like “A theory of gendercide” without the historical studies.
