Ordered Universe Reading Group (Durham)

OU Reading Group Easter-1A short notice to say that our informal reading group will be continuing during Easter term at Durham University. Our first meeting of the term will take place on the 22nd May at 3pm in Seminar Room 2 at Durham University’s Department of History. The reading group will examine the Natural Questions of Seneca (c. 4 BC-AD 65) to think about contrasts and comparisons with medieval authors such as Adelard of Bath and Robert Grosseteste.

All reading will be in English, with reference to the Latin text of the Natural Questions as appropriate.

Please do feel free to pass information around – in the first instance this is intended for staff and graduate students at Durham, other inquiries to attend will be decided on a case by case basis.

If you’d like to register interest please contact Giles Gasper or Tom McLeish (g.e.m.gasper@durham.ac.uk – t.c.b.mcleish@durham.ac.uk).
