Published on April 20, 2018

Miranda GinderMiranda Ginder MB’19, who is also minoring in humanities, traveled to Washington, DC, where she presented at the Sunoikisis Undergraduate Research Symposium.

This annual event, held at Harvard University's Center for Hellenic Studies, brings together students pursuing research in classics and other related areas to share their research and receive feedback from students and professors at other universities.

Ginder’s paper, "The Societal and Intellectual Barriers to a Unified Microbial Theory in Ancient Greece and Rome," was accepted after blind-review by a committee of scholars, received a warm response at the Symposium from leading professors in the field, and will be published later this year in the Sunoikisis Undergraduate Research Journal. She also presented this research at USciences' Annual Research Day and for a meeting of the Board of Visitors.
