Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Faculty of Language, Literature and Humanities - Alexander von Humboldt Professorship

Kolloquium

Zeit: montags, 10-12 Uhr, digital über Zoom wöchentlich.

In this research colloquium, participants and guests present and discuss ongoing work on ancient medicine, ancient philosophy, the history of science and their reception. In addition, Greek and Latin medical texts that are currently in the process of being edited, translated and commented, are subjected to close reading and discussion. During Sommersemester 2020 the colloquium has to take place online on Zoom. Participants will present parts of their actual work and we will go on reading (Ps.-?)Alexander of Aphrodisias, De febribus together in some of the sessions.

Since work-in-progress and unpublished materials will be circulated in advance of the colloquium, participation needs to be confirmed with Prof. Dr. Philip van der Eijk (philip.van.der.eijk@hu-berlin.de).
