This Ancient Medicine seminar will be comprised of two half hour papers and will be followed by some seasonal cheer. The papers will be presented by Brandon McDonald (Lincoln College/Archaeology) on 'Climate Change and the Antonine Plague' and Solmeng-Jonas Hirschi (Lincoln College/Classics) on 'Philosophia Medicans and Empowerment: Mental Health as Processual Happiness in Epicurus' Letters'.

These interdisciplinary research seminars are intended to bring together those inside the University and elsewhere who have an interest in disease and medicine in the ancient world.
