Molly Jones-Lewis joined Centre's faculty in 2012 as a visiting assistant professor of classics.
Jones-Lewis's academic specialty is interculturality and medicine in antiquity, particularly as concerns the relationship of physicians in Rome to their larger cultural context. She teaches courses in Greek and Latin language and literature as well as courses in Greco-Roman mythology; Pagans, Christians, and Jews in antiquity, and Colonization and Imperialism in the Ancient Mediterranean.
She has published on the culture of medicine and the use of poison in the ancient world. Current projects include co-editing a volume of essays concerning Ethnicity in Greco-Roman scientific literature and an article on the role of enslaved eunuchs in Imperial Rome. She is also in the early stages of a translation and edition of Nicander's Theriaka and Alexipharmaka and a monograph on the doctor-patient relationship in the Roman Empire.
