I’m delighted to share that the registration for the Musonius Rufus workshop that I’m co-organising with my Royal Holloway colleague John Sellars is now open! The programme is as follows:

10.00-10.30: Arrival / Registration
10.30-11.20: ‘Musonius’ and Epictetus’ lectures on exercise: a case-study of influence in
Roman Stoicism?’ – Jean-Baptiste Gourinat (Paris)
11.20-12.10: ‘Musonius on oikeiosis and appropriate relations’ – Georgia Tsouni (Basel)
12.10-1.00: ‘Musonius Rufus on Gender Equality’ – René Brouwer (Utrecht)
1.00-2.00: Lunch
2.00-2.50: ‘Sexual Pleasure in Musonius Rufus’ – Kurt Lampe (Bristol)
2.50-3.40: ‘The Diet of a Stoic Knight: Musonius Rufus on Food Ethics’ – William
Stephens (Creighton)
3.40-4.00: Tea/Coffee
4.00-5.00: Roundtable Discussion

The workshop is free to attend but spaces will be limited so we are asking people to register in advance. You can do this via Eventbrite.

Musonius is a really interesting yet underappreciated figure in Roman Stoicism, and I’m really looking forward to a day of discussion about him and his thought.
