Prof. Dr. Suzanne Marchand (Lousiana State University/Max-Planck-Institut für Wissenschaftsgeschichte): „Herodotus and the Egyptian Priests“ und
Dr. Alexander Meeus (Universität Mannheim): „Stupid asses, lazy lizards and intellectual pygmies? Diodor und die Rezeption der griechischen Historiographie”Der Workshop findet am Freitag, den 7.

Suzanne Marchand is LSU Systems Boyd Professor of European Intellectual History at Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge. Marchand obtained her BA from UC Berkeley in 1984, and her PhD from the University of Chicago in 1992. She served as Assistant and then Associate Professor at Princeton University before moving to LSU in 1999. In 2014, she was appointed LSU Systems Boyd Professor, LSU’s highest honor. She is the author of Down from Olympus: Archaeology and Philhellenism in Germany, 1750–1870 (Princeton University Press, 1996) and German Orientalism in the Age of Empire: Race, Religion, and Scholarship (Cambridge University Press, 2009), which won the George Mosse Prize of the American Historical Association. She is also the coauthor of two textbooks: Worlds Together, Worlds Apart (W.W. Norton, 4th ed., 2013) and Many Europes (McGraw Hill, 2013), and of numerous absurdly arcane articles on the history of the humanities, most of which focus on modern Germany and Austria. In 2017, she founded the Center for Collaborative Knowledge at LSU, whose mission is to enhance cross-college conversations between faculty and students. She is now finishing a history of the porcelain industry in Central Europe and writing a history of Herodotus reception since 1700.
