New Chair of Latin

20 May 2016

We're delighted to announce that Yasmin Haskell, currently at the University of Wester Australia, will be coming to Bristol in January as the new Chair of Latin. Professor Haskell is a leading international researcher in neo-Latin studies and the reception of classical literature, especially within the society of Jesuits, and also specialises in the history of emotions and psychiatry. She will be strengthening and developing the department's long-standing activities in classical reception and building links with other research groups in the university, especially medical humanities; this is an enormously exciting appointment for us.
