In this research colloquium, we will meet to present and discuss ongoing work on ancient medicine and its relationship to ancient philosophy, the history of science, literature and cultural and religious history. In addition, invited lecturers will discuss current research in the field of ancient medicine, ancient life sciences, and their reception. Since work-in-progress and unpublished materials will be circulated in advance of the colloquium, participation needs to be confirmed with Dr. Sean Coughlin (sean.coughlin@hu-berlin.de).
