The Legacy of Arnaldo Momigliano, London, 29 - 30 May, 2009

This series of colloquia will explore the significance of Momigliano's legacy twenty years after his death, and on the centenary of his birth, in all the various areas where he made a major contribution. The Warburg selection of speakers is based on the group of scholars who took part in the original Warburg seminars from 1967 to 1983, and who have continued to work in the areas that he made his own. The series is jointly organised by the Warburg Institute, UCL and the Scuola Normale Superiore (Pisa).
