Approaches to Ancient Medicine

This conference continues the very popular series which has been held annually since 2000 at the Universities of Newcastle and Reading, and most recently in 2010 at Cardiff University. The series aims to provide a forum for a mixture of junior doctoral, post doctoral researchers and more established scholars, and to cover a broad range of subjects under the general heading "Ancient Medicine". This year's programme features Professor Brooke Holmes (Princeton University) on "The Sympathetic Cosmos and the Purposeful Body in Galen's On Natural Faculties " and Professor Helen King (The Open University) on "The early modern Phaethousa: transformations of a Hippocratic case history" and covers a range of presentations from Hippocrates and Old Comedy to Medieval Byzantine poetry and the reception of Galen in early modern surgery.
