Dr Fowden uses the complex pagan, Christian, Muslim and contemporary history of the Olympieion precinct to examine ideological conflicts and contradictory genealogies that co-exist in what the Cambridge urban historian Wendy Pullan calls a 'transitional topography'.

The respondent is Dr Maximilian Sternberg, Department of Architecture.

All colleagues, undergraduate, MPhil and PhD students in the Divinity Faculty or other areas (such as Classics, History, Modern and Medieval Languages, English, Philosophy and FAMES) are warmly welcome to attend this seminar.

Tea will be served at 3.30pm in the Selwyn Room.
