Venue and time: 12 December, Courtroom, Faculty of Theology, Oude Boteringestraat 38, 14:30-16:30 (note time)
Speaker: Prof. Eliza Glaze (Professor of History, Coastal Carolina University, USA)
Abstract: Specializing in the articulation of new knowledge based upon the evidence of medieval Latin medical manuscripts and healthscapes, Prof. Glaze’s research explores the processes by which medical knowledge was transmitted from the ancient Mediterranean into Western Europe via classroom experiences, textual media and contextualized practices. Her ultimate interest is two-fold: to recover and identify the transmission, interpretations and use of specialized material from the Mediterranean world, and to explore the social aspects of medical thought and practice manifest in surviving codices.
Masterclass: Prof. Glaze’s lecture will be preceded by a masterclass from 11:15, which is intended for REMA and PhD-students. If you would like to participate, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
