How neuroscience can enhance our understanding of ancient Greek theatre?

As the Events Director at IRIANS I focus on creating innovative environments in which our team and customers can experience novelty with a reference to their past events as well as the memory, discovery, collection, organization, presentation, and interpretation of information about these events.

As a Classicist I have always been interested in interdisciplinary approaches to interpreting the past and thus in bridging the gap between our experiences today and those that took place a couple of thousand of years ago. These two books: “The Routledge Handbook of Classics and Cognitive Theory” and “The Affective Theatre: The Cognitive Science of Greek Drama” will explore the application of cognitive theories, neuroscience and of the methodologies of affective sciences to cultural events in ancient Greece and Rome.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!
