Call for Papers


Continuing the annual series held at Newcastle, Reading, Cardiff and Exeter since 2000, the 2012 “Approaches to Ancient Medicine” conference will be held at the University of Cardiff on Monday and Tuesday 20-21 August 2012, hosted by the School of History, Archaeology and Religion.

If you are interested in giving a paper at the conference, please send an abstract of up to 200 words to Dr. Laurence Totelin ([email protected]) by 20 February 2012 at the latest. Papers should be of 20 minutes duration. In addition to papers relating to the classical Greek and Roman period we welcome proposals relating to medicine in late antiquity, to the transmission of classical medicine including via the Syriac/Arabic traditions and to its reception at all periods up to the early modern.

It is hoped that the programme will be finalised in late March 2012.
