This talk will tell some stories of the women Herodotus sees as being at the origins of historical developments: how was it possible that they could have such an effect on history, given what we might think of as their political powerlessness? Why are they able to cause armies to move, dynasties to fall, and empires to expand or cease expanding?
This talk will be followed by luncheon at approximately 12:30.
Cost: $35 for the meal. Juice is provided; wine and beer available to buy.
RSVP by Wednesday 5th July. Bookings are essential. To book, see the flier in this month's Nova magazine, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
