We are pleased to introduce three new Fellows who have recently joined us. Aurore Ciavatti from the French Institute of Oriental Archaeology (IFAO) is working on a project entitled 'Time to Set the Record Straight: Synchronizing Time and Power in the Old Egyptian Kingdom'. Based on a corpus of unpublished chronometric data, the project aims to reconsider the earliest system of timekeeping in Egypt. For an in-depth look at the project, join us for Aurore's Chronoi Talk on May 25.
Peter N. Singer joins us for another project exploring the significance of temporality in ancient understandings and experience of emotion. Peter has previously worked at the EC-C on Galen's use of the pulse as a diagnostic and prognostic tool, and has published a book in our De Gruyter series on ancient perceptions of time. In his current project, he explores three core topics in relation to emotions: their temporal duration, their timeliness or temporal appropriateness, and anticipation and memory. To learn more, join us for his Chronoi Talk on April 27.
Also joining us is Rolf Ulrich from the Department of Psychology at the University of Tübingen. Building on current concepts and experimental designs in the field of temporal cognition, he examines whether people rely on the psychological reality of a left-to-right mental timeline when thinking about the temporal location of an event. His Chronoi Talk will take place on November 9.
