Congratulations to Jason König and Greg Woolf on the publication of their edited volume Authority and Expertise in Ancient Scientific Culture (CUP, 2017). This is the third in a trilogy of volumes arising from a Leverhulme Research Project on ‘Science and Empire in the Roman World’. The other two—Ancient Libraries and Encyclopaedism from Antiquity to the Renaissance—were published by CUP in 2013.
Today Professor Greg Woolf will be giving a lecture to the Centre for Global Humanities at the University of New England. The lecture, entitled “Values and Culture in the Roman World” will be broadcast live online, starting at 11pm GMT (18:00 EST).
