Description

Professor Greg Woolf, Director of the Institute of Classical Studies, will give his inaugural lecture entitled Humans and Other Beings in Our Classical Past.

Professor Greg Woolf's research focuses on the history and archaeology of the ancient world at the very large scale. His current projects include books on urbanism and on mobility, and ongoing collaborations on ancient library culture with former colleagues at St Andrews, where he was professor of ancient history. He is an associated fellow at the Max Weber Kolleg in Erfurt, where he leads a Humboldt Foundation funded research project into the role of sanctuaries in forming religious experience. Professor Woolf chairs the Council of University Classical Departments and is a member of the British Museum Trustees’ Research Committee. In June 2016 he was elected a member of the Academia Europea.

This event will be followed by a wine reception.
